Not illustrated. 1877 edition. Excerpt: ...and My own, As royal co-assessors, Are nearest to My throne. My Martyrs reign in glory, Who triumphed as they fell, And by a thousand tortures Defeated death and bell: And every patient sufferer, Who sorrow dared contemn, For each especial anguish Hath one especial gem. The Virgins walk in beauty Amidst their lily bowers, The coronals assuming Of amaranthine fiowers: And each true-hearted Widow, Made perfect in My grace, Hath meet, though lower, portion Midst those that see My Face. And they in saintly wedlock Unspotted lives who led, Preserving in its pureness The undented bed: And Innocents sport gaily Through all the courts of light, --To whom I gave the guerdon Before they fought the fight. The Penitents, attaining Full pardon in My sight, Leave off the vest of sackcloth And don the robe of white: The bondsman and the noble, The peasant and the king, All gird one glorious Monarch In one eternal ring. 298. 6,5,6,5,6,5,6,5. FT1HOSE eternal bowers Man hath never trod, Those unfading flowers Round the Throne of God: Who may hope to gain them After weary fight? Who at length attain them Clad in robes of white? He, who gladly barters All on earthly ground, He who, like the Martyrs, Says, "I will be crowned: " He, whose one oblation Is a life of love; Clinging to the nation Of the blest above. Shame upon you, legions Of the Heavenly King, Denizens of regions Past imagining! What, with pipe and tabour Fool away the light, When He bids you labour, When He tells you, " Fight!" While I do my duty Struggling through the tide, Whisper Thou of beauty On the other side! Tell who will the story Of our now distress; O the future glory! O the loveliness! dlso 350, 516, 579, 585, 586. All Souls. Nov. 2. 299. E. &M. 8,7,8,7.8,7....show more
