I court this thing to be grandly true;
Thit a noble deed is a step toward God
Litting the soul from the common clod
To a purer air and a broader view.
We rise by the things that are under feet;
Bv what we have mistered of goo J and gain;
By the.pride deposed and the passion slain, 1
And the vanquished ills tha twe hourly meet- j
We hope, we aspire, we resolve we trust,
When the morning calls us to life and liht,
But we grow weary, and ere the night,
Our lives are trailing the sordid dust.
We bnoe, we resolve, we aspire, we pray,
And we think tint we m Dunt the air on wings;
Beyond the recall of common things,
While our feet still cling to the hevty clay.
Wings for angels, but feet for men!
' We may borrow wings to find the way
We may hope, aspire, resolve and pray;
But our feet must rise' or wefall again.
Only in dreams is a ladder thrown
From the weary earth to the saphire walls
But the dreams depart and the vision falls, '
And the sleeper awakes on his pillow ofstone.
Heaven is not reached at a single bound;
But we build the ladder by which we rise
From the lowly earth to the vaultc skies,
And we mount to its summit roun by round.
