Yet i've got visible them helpless, dash'd right down to a bloody grave, And nonetheless thy ruthless eye has flash'd, Thy robust hand didn't keep; i have obvious a few o'er the mountain's forehead Sustain'd awhile via thee, O'er rocks of ice and hills of snow certain fearless, wild, and unfastened. daring and exultant was once their mien, whereas thou didst cheer them on; yet night fell,—and then, I ween, Their faithless consultant was once long past. lamentably! how fared thy favourites then,— Lone, helpless, weary, chilly? Did ever wanderer locate back the trail he left of previous? the place is their glory, the place the delight That swelled their hearts ahead of? the place now the braveness that confounded The mightiest tempest's roar? What shall they do while evening grows black, whilst offended storms come up? Who now will cause them to the song Thou taught'st them to despise? Spirit of satisfaction, it wishes now not this To make me shun thy wiles, surrender thy triumph and thy bliss, Thy honours and thy smiles! vivid as thou paintings, and impressive, and robust, That fierce look wins now not me, and that i abhor thy scoffing tongue— i cannot stick with thee! Spirit of religion! be thou my consultant, O clasp my hand in thine, And allow me by no means hand over thy part; Thy comforts are divine! Earth calls thee blind, erroneous one,— yet who can shew like thee Forgotten issues which have been performed, And issues which are to be? secrets and techniques conceal'd from Nature's ken, Who like thee can claim? Or who like thee to erring males God's holy will can undergo? delight scorns thee for thy lowly mien,— yet who like thee can upward push Above this toilsome, sordid scene, past the holy skies? Meek is thine eye and gentle thy voice, yet wondrous is thy could, To make the wretched soul have a good time, to provide the straightforward gentle! And nonetheless to all that search thy manner This magic strength is given,— E'en whereas their footsteps press the clay, Their souls ascend to heaven. hazard surrounds them,—pain and woe Their component right here needs to be, yet in basic terms they that belief thee comprehend What convenience dwells with thee; power to maintain their drooping pow'rs, And energy to defend,— Thou pole-star of my darkest hours Affliction's firmest good friend! Day doesn't continuously mark our approach, Night's shadows oft appal, yet lead me, and that i can't stray,— carry me, I shall now not fall; maintain me, I shall by no means faint, How tough soe'er will be My upward road,—nor moan, nor plaint Shall mar my belief in thee. slim the trail in which we move, And oft it turns other than friendly meads the place roses blow, And peaceable waters drift; the place flowery turf lies eco-friendly and smooth, and mild gales are candy, To the place darkish mountains frown aloft, tough rocks misery the feet,— Deserts past lie bleak and naked, And willing winds around us blow; but when thy hand conducts me there, the best way is true, i do know. i've got no desire to draw back; My spirit doesn't quail,— How can it whereas I listen thee say, "Press ahead and be triumphant! " Even above the tempest's swell I pay attention thy voice of love,— Of wish and peace, I listen thee inform, And that blest domestic above; via ache and dying i will have fun. If yet thy energy be mine,— Earth hath no song like thy voice, existence owns no pleasure like thine!
