14. Grant. by George H. Boker. As Moses stood upon the flaming hill, With all the people gathered at his feet, Waiting in Sinai's valley, there to meet The awful bearer of Jehovah's will; So, Grant, thou stand'st, amidst the trumpets shrill, And the wild fiery storms that flash and beat In iron thunder and in leaden sleet, Topmost of all, and most exposed to ill. Oh! stand thou firm, great leader of our race, Hope of our future, till the time grows bland, And into ashes drops war's dying brand! Then let us see thee, with benignant grace, Descend thy height, God's glory on thy face, And the law's tables safe within thy hand.
Author's note The facts relating to the life of Garrison and the anti-slavery struggle recited in this volume were gathered from the monumental work, William Lloyd Garrison, The Story of His Life Told by His Children (Four Volumes, Octavo, Houghton, Miffin and Company, Boston, Mass.), a fascinating book which should be found upon the shelves of every public library in America. From lips that Sinai's trumpet blew We heard a tender under-song; Thy very wrath from pity grew, From love of man thy hate of wrong. Whittier, To Garrison.
