When Israel was from bondage led,Led by the Almighty's handFrom out of foreign land,The great sea beheld and fled.
"What dost thou see, lone watcher on the towerIs the day breaking? comes the wish'd-for hour?Tell us the signs, and stretch abroad thy handIf the bright morning dawns upon the land.""The stars are clear above me, scarcely oneHas dimm'd its rays in reverence to the sun;But yet I see, on the horizon's verge,Some fair, faint streaks, as if the light would surge."charles mackay
Perhaps when all the world is bare And cruel winter holds the land,The Love that finds no place to hide Will run and catch my hand.I shall not care to have him then, I shall be bitter and a-cold —It grows too late for frolicking When all the world is old.Then little hiding Love, come forth, Come forth before the autumn goes,And let us seek thro' ruined paths The garden's last red rose.sara teasdale
