Poetry Saturday—On The Journey

Make home beautiful,
Have lips truthful,
Make hearts hopeful,
Have friends trustful;
   As you journey on through life.

Make eyes shine brighter,
And hearts grow lighter,
Ever lend a helping hand,
Do all the good you can;
   As you journey on through life.

Do not form opinion blindly,
Nor of others speak unkindly,
If we like our Lord would be,
We must show more charity;
   As we journey on through life.

Let our motto ever be,
‘More like Thee! More like Thee!’
Savior, Leader, Brother, Friend,
All our hopes on Thee depend;
   As we journey on through life. —Emma C. Elliot
