Faith enlightens us,
Hope supports us, Love draws us.
Some Days are Dark and dreary,
Others are sunny and sweet,
But what are all save a ladder of love
Leading to God's dear Feet?
No matter how deep the shadow
Or how friendless we may stand,
We know our feet will ever be firm
If we trust in God's sure Hand.
And yet on the upward journey
There are dangers hidden from all;
And even from the loftiest height
The unwary feet may fall;
But if faith and love, twin beacon lights,
Shine on us from above,
We shall reach Our Father's home at last
On Life's great ladder of love.
