So let our faith burn bright!And if they crush our golden ways,
There to hold his wedding feast;When a threatening foe advances
I'll soon return, and all will be straight.
Who can better than the bardGuide a friend when gone astray?
Where'er our foot we set,
What would avail his chariot-throne?
Stars are wont to glimmer so.

1775.-----CONSTANCY IN CHANGE.
GOD to his untaught children sent
They went out by another gate,O'er plains and fields proceeding straight,No house or tree was near the spot,The sun was bright, the day was hot;In short, the weather being such,A draught of water was worth much.The Lord walk'd on before them all,And let, unseen, a cherry fall.St. Peter rush'd to seize it hold,As though an apple 'twere of gold;His palate much approv'd the berry;The Lord ere long another cherryOnce more let fall upon the plain;St. Peter forthwith stoop'd again.The Lord kept making him thus bendTo pick up cherries without end.For a long time the thing went on;The Lord then said, in cheerful tone:"Had'st thou but moved when thou wert bid,Thou of this trouble had'st been rid;The man who small things scorns, will next,By things still smaller be perplex'd."
