School-hymn, by Felix Adler (1868)

https://opensiddur.org/?p=45284 School-hymn, by Felix Adler (1868) 2022-06-24 23:07:35 "School-hymn" is a hymn written by Felix Adler and published in <em><a href="https://opensiddur.org/?p=45248">Hymns, for Divine Service in the Temple Emanu-El</a></em> (1871), hymn №36, p. 70. We have found this hymn published in <em>A Guide to Instruction in the Israelitsh Religion</em> (Samuel Adler, trans. M. Mayer, Temple Emanu-El, 1864, 4th printing 1868). The hymn, numbered "36" is appended from another unattributed work as it appears in the 1871 Temple Emanu-El hymnal. So, tentatively, we may date this hymn to 1868, although it may likely have been authored earlier, along with the other hymns later attributed in 1871 by Rabbi James K. Gutheim to Felix Adler.

School-hymn.
There is many a flower on the pathway of life
The eye of the pilgrim to cheer,
But what flower is so fragrant, so sweet and so fair,
As the flower of truth blooming here—
Here, in the garden of truth.
There is many a treasure, full precious and bright,
Delighting the heart and the mind.
But what treasure so fair, in its worth to compare,
With the treasure which here we may find—
Knowledge, the purest of gold.
Then blessed be these halls, where religion’s bright flame
Shines clear, and undimmed in its glow.
In the day when we prosper to guide us aright,
Our comfort in sorrow and woe—
Here may it dwell evermore.
