In which here’s a bit of a favorite hymn

On our wedding program I included the third verse from Praise the Source of Faith and Learning, the hymn written for Duke by Thomas Troger. Not only does it mirror a lot of my life, it’s beautiful in its rhyme and simple imperatives of thanks and praise:

Praise for minds to probe the Heavens; praise for strength to breathe the air
Praise for all that beauty leavens; praise for silence, music, prayer
Praise for justice and compassion; praise for strangers, neighbors, friends
Praise for hearts and lips to fashion: Praise for LOVE that never ends!
