Since Thou He hast who done well can to kneel take and say : gave
And bid me suffer— , I obey . away And also well to tell thy heart
And That thou good wilt lies profit in the b bitterest y her smart part . , But bitter hours come to all :
Sick When hearts even for truths humbler like these comfort will call pall . , Then I would have thee strive to see
As That one good of a and great evil famil come y . to thee , That And as even material the loneliest life is planned one must , stand
Dependent on his brother ' s hand ; * , Bind So links more other subtle soul and to thine more fine , every
In one great brotherhood divine , . _ISTor with thy share of work be vext
It Thoug fits h exactl incomp to lete the , and next even . perplext , y May "What be seems a shadow so dark seen to thv arilit dim sight ,
Making some brig , htness doubl g , y bright * To The shelter flash that thee struck —lets th Heaven y tree , ' — s blue no more floor
Shine where it , never shone before . Thy life that lias been dropped aside
In Into rippled Time ' s circle stream s spreading , may stir wide the . tide May The cry echo wrung on some from far- th off y sp lain irit ' s pain ,
And guide a wanderer home p again , . Fail—yet rejoice . Because no less
May The failure teach another that makes full success thy distress . Th It may y life be ' s , _poor that fragments in some great are decreed need ,
To help build up a lofty deed .
