O blessed life — the heart at rest

When all without tumultuous seems,

That trusts a higher will, and deems

That higher will, not mine, the best.


O blessed life, the mind that sees,

Whatever change the years may bring,

A mercy still in everything,

And shining through all mysteries.


O blessed life, as spirit soars,

When sense of mortal sight is dim,

Beyond the sense, beyond to Him,

Whose love unlocks the glorious doors.


O blessed life, heart, mind, and soul,

From self-born aims and wishes free,

In all at one with Deity,

And loyal to the Lord's control.


O life, how blessed, how divine,

High life, the earnest of a higher;

Savior, fulfil my deep desire,

And let this blessed life be mine.
