All labor gained new dignity
since he who all creation made
toiled with his hands for daily bread
No work is commonplace,
be done as unto him alone;
life's simplest toil to him is known
who knoweth all.
Each smallest common thing he makes
serves him with its minutest part;
man only with his wandering heart
his way forsakes.
His service is life's highest joy,
it yields fair fruit a hundred fold:
be this our prayer: "Not fame, nor gold,
but thine employ!"
, pseudonym of William Arthur Dunkerely (1852-1941), 192084
