I know not what the day may hold,
But he who rules it I know;
He gives me joy and makes me bold,
And cheers me in my woe.
In blinded crowds who move as one,
A darkened world is ours;
Above us burns an eternal sun
With life-awakening powers.
Lord, raise my eyes and lift my sight,
In me make faith appear;
For change to stir and zeal excite
Upon this spinning sphere.
