THE
WISH OF A
FRIEND
 LIKE THE BROOK SO
GLADLY SINGING

TOWARD THE SEA,
LIKE THE TRUANT SWAL-
-LOW WINGING

ITS HOMWARD WAY,
AS THE HAPPY SKY-
-LARK SOARING

TO THE SUN,
LIKE A GUSHING FOUN-
-TAIN POURING

FORTH ITS SONG,
SO LET THY STEPS BE
EVER BENDING

TOWARD THE WAY,
WHICH LEADS BY FAITH
TO NEVER ENDING

ETERNAL DAY.
