FAILURE.

Fear not to fail if thou hast sti Len Bravely with purpose firmly set, No effort stinted and no doubt axlowed The steady motion of thy will to fret. From out thy failure some stray spark May-kindle light where none has been, !And scattered grain by wayside fall’n. May bring forth harvests unforeseen ! Fear not to fail ! The yawning trench .Which guards some battlemented wrong By unknown martyrs may be filled, And o'er them march the conquering throng. The dimness of our earthlj' kcn^ Can scarce the difference rightly guess. Nor justly strike the balance yet, •'Twixt seeming failure and success. Trust then and work, tho shadowed by , The gloom of doubt and gathering fear : With fuller light they toil, thy faith Will find the rich provided here ! Nor praise, nor blame, can make or mar The worth of what is nobly wrought. For time and truth alone can test Each offering to life’s storehouse brought.. ■—Mrs Alexander. , *
