Excerpt from Faith, or Earthly Paradise: And Other Poems Dedicated To Each Reader. Mould I could stand againOn the threshold of sunny youth;Would I could tell with an angel's tongueThe story of God's great truth. Would I could sweep the chordsOf some harp that the world would hear;That the melting tes of Redeeming LoveMight reach each mortal ear. Would I could stand aloftOn some mountain-top of thought;And tell all nations of the planWith so much goodness fraught. Would I - e'en I - could goTo utmost bounds of earth;That my voice, and eyes, and life might tellThe story of Christian worth! God grant that these feeble linesMay in some soul be cast, That will bud and blossom in Mission-fieldsBearing some fruit at last.
