a lie! For us with steady strength of heart and zeal forever true, The champion of the island slave the conflict doth renew, His labor here hath been to point the Pharisaic eye Away from empty creed and form to where the wounded lie. How beautiful to us should seem the coming feet of such! Their garments of self-sacrifice have healing in their touch; Their gospel mission none may doubt, for they heed the Master's call, Who here walked with the multitude, and sat at meat with all!
