Without haste and without rest Bind the




"Without haste and without rest" ;
Bind the motto to thy breast,
Bear it with thee as a spell ;
Storm or sunshine, guard it well ;
Heed not flowers that round thee bloom ;
Bear it onward to the tomb.


Haste not : let no thoughtless deed
Mar the spirit s steady speed ;
Ponder well and know the right,
Onward then with all thy might ;
Haste not years can ne'er atone
For one reckless action done !


Rest not : life is sweeping by,
Do and dare before you die ;
Something worthy and sublime
Leave behind to conquer time ;
Glorious 'tis to live for aye,
When these forms have passed away.


Haste not rest not ; calm in strife,
Meekly bear the storms of life ;
Duty be thy polar guide,
Do the right, whate'er betide ;
Haste not rest not : conflicts past,
God shall crown thy work at last !
