I Will Seek Beauty All My Days

  I will seek Beauty all my days

Within the dark chaos of a troubled world I will seek and find some Beauteous thing.

From eyes gone dim with weeping will shine a Light to guide me, and in Sorrow's Hour I shall behold a great High Courage.

I shall find the wonder of an infinite Patience, and a quiet Faith in coming Joy and Peace.

And Love will I seek in the midst of Discord, and find swift eager hands out-stretched in welcome.

I shall seek Beauty all my days, and in my quest I shall not be dismayed.
