'Tis weary watching wave by wave,

And yet the tide heaves onward;

We climb, like corals, grave by grave,

That pave a pathway sunward.

We're driven back, for our next fray

A newer strength to borrow;

And where the vanguard camps to-day,

The rear shall rest to-morrow.

—Gerald Massey.

 

Be like the bird, that, pausing in her flight

A while on boughs too slight,

Feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings,

Knowing that she hath wings.

—Victor Hugo.

 

Trust in Jehovah, and do good;

Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness.

—Psalm 37. 3.

 

Eternal God, help me to realize that life is not only endless but, whether I live in love and obedience, or wait in neglect and indifference, that I can never separate myself from thee. May I be diligent in worthy endeavors to do my best for thee. Amen.
