Original text and translations
1. Though lowly here our lot may be,
High work have we to do;
In faith and trust to follow him
Whose lot was lowly too.
2. Our days of darkness we may bear,
Strong in our Father's love;
We lean on his almighty arm,
And fix our hopes above.
3. Our lives enriched with gentle thoughts
And loving deeds may be,
As streams that still the nobler grow,
The nearer to the sea.
4. To duty firm, to conscience true,
However tried and pressed,
In God's clear sight high work to do,
If we but do our best.
5. Thus may we make the lowliest lot
With rays of glory bright;
Thus may we turn a crown of thorns
Into a crown of light.
