Not illustrated. 1875 edition. Excerpt: ...I must honest be, and careful Not about his eye alone, But with spirit prompt and prayerful, Pluck the beam out of mine own. UNCONSCIOUS HELPERS. dFtfth unttag after CCrtmtD. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?--I Pet. iii. 13. WITH what bright and holy charm Christian life is here endued Nought on earth can vex or harm Followers of the thing that's good. For, tho' from the lot of all No exemption they can claim, But disease and death must fall Upon good and bad the same: --Uticonscious Helpers. T 13 Still there is a joy, that glows Thro' the Christian's inmost soul, Which the worldling little knows, And the world can less control: --Which, above the cares of life, Lifts him into calm and peace, Keeps him tranquil in the strife Which, he knows, must shortly cease: --Shows a meaning, and an end, In the training of his heart; Draws him nearer to a Friend, From Whom nought but sin can part. Even they, who think they harm With their poor and spiteful hate, Only work a deeper charm In the earnest Christian's fate; Helpers in Love's wondrous plan, Though unconscious and accurst, They a holier, happier man Leave him, when they've done their worst. Turning his sad eyes within, Showing him God's meaning there, Some unknown, unconquer'd sin, Which affliction has laid bare. H4 Unconscious Helpers. Thus all things are for the best, He by hindrances doth rise; Hides his secret in his breast, Passes upward to the skies. Mystic secret far more worth Than the sage's charm of old, Turning all the dross of earth Into Sanctuary gold. WAKENED MEMORIES. JHvtl) Jbuirtrag after Crtmtg. Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee; Leave there thy gift before.show more
