A Mngle drop from au un fat homed sen ; But God's is infinite, its fills the earth Ami Hosren. and the broad, trackless realm of space. Earth'* mvited voiees hymn it ceaselessly ; The mountains toil it to the peaoeful vales. In tttnefui strenni, and voiceful water falls. That bear it on. and smg ?t to the sea, I'ntil ltssreat Weart swells, that restless heart. Bestmg forever on the answendg ahore! Tis srroinig in the golden light of day. And beaming gently from the starry eyes That watch, at n<gf>t, a sinlul, shrouded world; It ss.wks to us tprtingh odorous lips of tlowers. Ana wnrWen from the singing hearts of birds. O. that all human hearts might join the strain; Then Hate and Bigotry sadSin would die; Then Peace would reign and wear 13 olive dawn. And War. with blood-stained feet, no longer track |>.rth's fair romaiu. or wsre its eriina?>n (lag. Then Pride would lay its Haunting mantle by ? The cry of hungor oease?the < >ppres*or's rod woolu scourge no more, but man be !niked to man lu one anbrcken chain of brotherhood. " ?e whf>sc Weeding feet have weary grown ' In the?? rough wsys of onrs'"?whose brows are pierced By the sharp gri-fs of life?whoso icme *e<rts yeera For huniau love, and yearn, alas in vain; Though Time and Death have broken one by one, The few. frail reeds whereon ye leaned ao long Ana trustingly, and left no earthly stay ; Good cheer: there conies at last, untroubled rest; The crowns are thorr.less that the angel* wave. And Uou'slove is eternal.
