And the stream runs slow, And life is at its ebb; As we near-the goal, When the golden bowl Shall be broken at its fount.; With what- sweetest thought Shall the hour be fraught, What precious most shall we count? Not the flame of the sword, Nor the wealth we have stored In the perishable things of earth— Not the way we have trod With the intellect broad, Though that were of precious worth; Nor the gain we achieved Through the hearts we have grieved. And left unhelped by the way; Nor the laurel of fame, When, for worldly acclaim' We toiled in the heat aud the fray. Ah. nyl 'tis not these Will give our hearts ease When life sinks low in the west, But the passing sweet thought Of the good wo have wrought, The -lulddned lives we have blest. And the lose we have won. And M .e love bccko;;i..i > . From hi-, i ,*hv -i)d j.»i: Love oni -it the light Shining into fhe nisht. i l.c iiglit A'hicn lendevh t-. him V.
