Een by the hand of the wicked
can truth be working with vigor;
But the vessel is filled by what is beauteous alone.
Tell me all that thou knowest, and I will thankfully
But wouldst thou give me thyself,-let me, my friend, be excused!
Wouldst thou teach me the truth? Dont
take the trouble! I wish not,
Through thee, the thing to observe,-but to see thee through the thing.
Thee would I choose as my teacher
and friend. Thy living example
Teaches me,-thy teaching word wakens my heart unto life.
