Look for the beau­ti­ful, look for the true;
Look for the beau­ti­ful, life’s jour­ney thro’.
Seeking true love­li­ness, joy you will know,
As to the home above on­ward you go.


Look for the beau­ti­ful, seek to find the true,
God and the beau­ti­ful will dwell with you;
Look for the beau­ti­ful, seek to find the true,
You shall be beau­ti­ful, beau­ti­ful with­in.

Think of the beau­ti­ful, think of the pure;
Only the beau­ti­ful long can en­dure.
God to His low­ly ones giv­eth more grace;
None but the pure in heart look on His face.


Speak of the beau­ti­ful, speak of the pure;
These to eter­ni­ty fade­less en­dure.
Error shall van­ish soon, ev­il de­cay;
God and the beau­ti­ful pass not away.


Look to the stars of light (not down to earth);
All that is beau­ti­ful there had its birth.
Upward and for­ward go, look­ing above;
There is the dwell­ing-place of per­fect love.
