Dorcas women of Benevolence, Sisters of Mercy, Brotherhoods of Hope, Christian commissions, needed Pilgrim guides Through Danger's paths to Beulah s shining Mount--All these, and more, in all the ages pass; Have led the Hope Forlorn in this world strife, And fell in the Thermopylse of Time Within the deadly breach none dared to pass--Have learned from thy great Advent, Son of God, How to go down like Thee into the vale Of conflict, infamy, and toil, and blood, Transforming Sodam-vales, and Marah-streams, Into the Eden Valley of Delight And luscious plenty. Onward speeds the race Of thy bright witnesses through all the years Until the final end; and when they go Like the Elijah's of the past to Heaven Borne in their flaming chariots, shall fall Their Mantles upon others waiting near To smite the waters, and divide the flood; O'er which the ransomed of the Lord shall pass, To fair Bethropha, His best place of health; His chosen Bethlehem, the house of bread; Or arched Bethesda, house of Mercy famed, Or sweet Betharam, temple of His Grace, Or Bethel, famous as the House of God; Restoring health, and never-failing bread--Sustaining Mercy, all-rewarding Good, With God the Temple where their souls shall dwell Their everlasting heritage and home.
