Out from the dark leaved life, bloomed hope, riped love.
Feeling, unchained, sprang fair from feeling's dearth.
Forth o'er the waters of blind pain the dove
Of Sentience winged, thrilled all applauding earth.
Love hovered above you, kissed your lips to speech,
Taught your dumb hands its language. A lode star,
Thought pointed dream to action; with proud reach
Its station was Imagination's car.

You, in return, have borne that borrowed light
Across deep human grief and cheered its day.
You nurse the dream that dawns behind the sight.
Because of you, Hope wears bright wreath of May.
Thus radiant Faith undaunted treads the night --
Thus one brave heart ten thousand souls can stay.
