There is a peace that passeth understanding;
There is a joy the world can never know;
There is a light —you will not find it burning
On any land or sea where’er you go.
This joy of mine is not of earthlymaking,
Though you may find it in the sun-set’s blush;
Above the noise and din of human striving
There is a Presence and a holy hush!
(By CUSHMAN, RALPH SPAULDING 1879-1960)
