There is a certain sense of life

With life of every kind;

And in th' eternal life in us

It is a sense divine.


The higher any life may be,

The better is its sense;

The life divine the highest is

And has the highest sense.


It is the sense of life in us,

It is the sense of God;

'Tis in our spirit made alive,

And more than sense of good.


It is the inner sense in us,

The inmost consciousness,

Discerning matters inwardly,

God's will to thus express.


'Tis by this sense that God we know,

The sense of inner life;

'Tis pow'rful and spontaneous,

And not of any strife.


The greater is our growth in life,

The keener is this sense;

The more we walk and act in life,

The more it is intense.


The sense of life when exercised

Will make our spirit bold,

And by this inner sense of God

True fellowship we hold.
