young tmindI(s are apt to thinik, there Is
one great work in which you should not
fail, int which you need not fail, and itn
which, if you fail, all other success is ul
tiniatehy in vain. That one great wvork is
to miake somiething out of yoturself, ot

stnces will serve as a field for the work
of perfecting one's inner life. Carlyle
remnarks somnewhere: "SHublimer in this
world k now I nothing the.n a peasant

a royal saint or a priestly saint, It Is not
the royalty or priesthood or peasantry
that is sublime; It is the saintliness.

whole world and lose his own soul."
Ymownt soul is the field for youtr great

are you going to give yotur sotil back to
your Maker when: done with life? Thiat
Is the most serious question of human
existence. Will you return yotur sotul to
God marred, myptilaited, defi led, debased,

as. a thing worthless for his eter'nal ptur

by a constant seeking of those things

You are now going out into the world.

itetat ltwer. The only struggle that te
set ves to be calle t sublime struggle is at
fttugele inl the htuntun soul between good
tile evil, ad the sublinest struggle that
henvegs ever looks down upon is Al young
fnatt or eong woman at overcones the
power of evil and persistently rises in
thaIt scale of life about which you heard
this morning. The very fact that you
fin sonte splendid characters going tdown
easily under temtptation but proves the
ower of telmptation, and therefore but
entphasiz.es the grandeur of the moral
victory of one who keeps himself free and
unspotted from the world, of one who
treads every aned of shame beneath his
feet. That is the struggle that deserves
to he characterized as truly sublite.
That is the exhibition of force and power
in comparison with which Niagara is in
significant. The power there is in the
moral struggle, the exhibition of those
forces that belong to the heart. And not
only as we see it thus, but the real power,
the tenderest and sweetest force of nature
belongs to the soul realm. All the beauty
of nature is love beauty. All the music
of nature is love music. The mightiest
force of all forces in the moral and the
physical realms the force of love that
takes in the real of heart, and the law
of self-sacrifice, of other than self. And
so in the realm of thought, those thoughts
that are real and eternal, those thoughts
that live and thrill and glow in the hearts
of men are always found t tbe acose that
belong to the realm of the soul, those of
life and love and utht ln youtyu t

who have power to prevail with God and
with mn in learning God's secrets.
God's secrets canl be discovered only by
the nu who is prepared, by God's priice,
God's cnpable man. God loves the world
and all things that he hans made, and lie
would have nto secrets, therefore, since
all that he ha41 mnatie is for the benefit of
huntanity. And God has never kept any
thing secret save for the fact that there
was not a mann who could understand it.
We want men and women who are princes
and princesses with God, to prevail in
learning God's secrets. All truth is not
discovered, but all truth is discoverable,
and much is yet to be learned by God's
capable Ismen, God's princes.
We need men to prevail with men in
leadership; in constructing institutions
and characters. Mighty is the force re
quired in the construction of character,
but mightier far is the force needed to
reconstruct character. If you look deep
into the worst man on earth, you will
find in him the image of the divine. It
may be reached and brought out to per
fection. This is a mighty work that God
has for you to do, in the first place as
young men and young women. It has
always been in the history of the world
that the young have done the greatest
work, and never was this so true as it is
today, and as it is in our own country.
And not only as young men and as young
women, but as college bred young men
and young women. I need say but a
word as to the reason for this. That lies
in the simple fact that while only two
per cent. of our young people ever find
their way into colleges, that that two per
cent. furnishes thirty per cent. of the
leadership of our land. So of those who
are constructing and reconstructing our
country, thirty per cent. are college-bred
young men. What power then resides i:,
you to iould and shape and control
the destinies of our nation. You
who are graduating stand upon a mount
of vision. Every one of you is standing
upon a high mount. You are looking
out upon the moving world about it.
You want to take active part in it all.
You are conscious of your own power as
young men and and women to fight your
way and make a success, and yet you
must quail before the mighty work if you
realize what it all is and feel your nieed
of more power. Ah! the yearning of all
of us to learn that secrec which Jacob had
learned. There is no scarcity of power.
God has provided all things necessary for
the building of the world and of the men
that he needs. That power is operative
through truth, :hrough God's word. That
power is all around us. The question for
you is the question of utilizing the power
that is around you.
Can we lay hold of those mighty forces
which are resident in your lives, resident
in your healthy sound bodies, in your
trained minds, in your hearts ? Well your
power be constructive or destructive ?
That is the question. That power that is
patential in you may become actual and
becomes actual through knowing and
being isn touch with God. Purity of
heart is the real source of your power, an
exalted purpose, thinking of high ideals,
noble aspirations. Never was there ideal
too high to make that ideal a reality in
I would that everyone of us could re
member the words that, were said thuis
morning about faith. It is that .that
links us to God, incarnates truth in mtan,
the embodiment of God's word, makes
man the vehicle through whom God can
speak the message that He would speak to
mail. Get hold of truth. Incarnate by
your faith thialeson of wisdom that you
have leurned, all these forces into your
like, until you are the incarniation of
Christian character. Live the truth, tell
the truth, and you will be God's princes
and dod's princesses, God's capable men
and women, In the, accomuplishment of
God's purpose in you and through you.
The man who is anid the nman who has
truth is always the man of-power. You
will see It everywhere. So live that your
life will become constructive, that you
will become God's princes, God's capable
men and women.
Love the truth and ntever fail to tell it.
May God help each one of us that there
may be nothing destructive in our live.,
that we may all be factors in the con
struction and reconstruction of the world
for the benefit of humanity.
