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.
