    Out of the light that dazzles me ,
    Bright as the sun from pale to pale ,
    I thank the God I know to be
    For Christ the conqueror of my soul .
    Since His the sway of circumstance
    I would not wince nor cry aloud .
    Under the rule which men call chance
    My head with joy is humbly bowed .
    Beyond this place of sin and tears --
    That life with Him ! and His the aid ,
    That spite the menace of the years ,
    Keeps , and shall keep , me unafraid .
    I shall not fear , though straight the gate ;
    He cleared from punishments the scroll .
    Christ is the Master of my fate ;
    Christ is the captain of my soul .
