The sun with loving light
makes bright for me each day,
the soul with spirit power
gives strength unto my limbs.

In sunlight shining clear I revere,
Oh God, the strength of humankind,
which thou has planted in my soul,
that I may with all my might,

may love to work and learn.
From thee stream light
and strength to thee rise
love and thanks.

— Rudolf Steiner
Austrian philosopher, born February 25, 1861
