111. Look for the Beautiful

1 Look for the beautiful, look for the true;
Sunshine and shadow are all around you.
Looking at evil we grope in the night,
Looking at Jesus we walk in the light;
Look for the beautiful, honor the right.

2 Think of the beautiful, think of the true;
Thoughts like an avalanche sweep over you.
Keep not the multitude, sort them with care,
Testing by purity, purging by prayer;
Think of the beautiful, think of the fair.

3 Talk of the beautiful, talk of the true;
Tongues full of poison are whispering to you.
Answer them not with a tale-bearing word,
Only in blessing the voice should be heard;
Talk of the beautiful, talk of thy Lord.

4 Live for the beautiful, love for the true,
Lifting the fallen as Christ lifted you.
Search for the jewels imbedded in sin;
Bring them to Jesus, his blood washes clean;
Live for the beautiful, keep love within.
