CHANGE AND PROGRESS IN NATURE AND GRACE




A race on earth, a race we run,
And hold a prize in view,
More bright than id we chased the sun
Through heavenís eternal blue.


Changes we prove, and vanish soon,ó
Changes from youth to age,ó
Transient as those that shape the moon
On her brief pilgrimage.


Like constellations on their way,
That meet the morning light,
We travel up to higher day,
We pass through deeper night.


Their tasks the heavenly host fulfil,
Ere long to shine their last;
We, if we do our Fatherís will,
Shall shine when they are past.


Knit like the social stars in love,
Fair as the moon, and clear
As yonder sun, enthroned above,
Christians through life appear.
