Silent, like men in solemn haste,
. Girded wayfarers of the waste,
I We pass out at the world’s wide gate,
Turning our back on all its state ;
We press along the narrow road
That leads to life, to bliss, to God.
I count this thing to be grandly true :
That a noble deed is a step towards
Lifting the soul from the common sod
To a purer air and a broader view.
No sigh for laughter left behind,
Or pleasures scattered to the wind,
No looking back on Sodom’s plains,
No listening still to Babel’s strains,
No tears for Egypt’s song and smile,
No thirsting for its flowing Nile.
While our feet still cling to the heavy
We rise by the things that are undei
We cannot and we would not stay ;

We dread the snares that throng the way ;
We fling aside the weight and sin,

Resolved the victory to win ;

No love of present gain or ease,

No dread of scandal on our name ;

And enmity but kindles love.

No vanity nor folly now ;
No fading garland round our brow,
No moody musings in the grove,
