Just where thou Art


Just where thou art lift up thy voice
And sing the song that stirs thy heart;
Reach forth thy strong and eager hand
To lift, to save, just where thou art.
Just where thou standest light thy lamp,
'Tis dark to others as to thee;
Their ways are hedged by unseen thorns,
Their burdens fret as thine fret thee.

Out yonder in the broad full glare
Of many lamps thine own might pale,
And thy sweet song amid the roar
Of many voices slowly fail;
While these, thy kindred, wandered on
Uncheered, unlighted, to the end.
Near to thy hand thy mission lies,
Wherever sad hearts need a friend.


Christianity excludes malignity, subdues selfishness, regulates the affections. It would unite men in one great brotherhood.

Help the grumblers to be happy and they will correct the cause of their grumbling.—The Universalist Leader.

I pray for strength to live
To all life's noble ends, prompt, just, and true,
Myself, my service, unto all to give,
And giving, yet renew
My store for bounty, all life's journey through.

William C. Richards.
