Brethren, Go! (a Valediction)

Brethren, go! the day is bright'ning
As the sultry noon steals on,
And the fields, already whit'ning,
Tell of labor to be done.

There are toilsome days before you,
Burdens that you may not shun,
Clouds will gather darkly o'er you,
Reeds will fail you one by one.

Yet go forth to strong endeavor,
'Neath the shadow of the cross;
He who calls will leave you never,--
Never let you suffer loss!

Go; the voices of the dying
Float on every passing breeze;
Tones of wild, imploring crying
Come from lands beyond the seas!

Go where pain and sorrow languish,
Go where Sin works strife and woe,
Cleanse Earth's stain, and heal her anguish,
Jesus calls you--brethren, go!


(The end)
Mrs. J. C. Yule's poem: Brethren, Go! (a Valediction)

The World's Day
Dark was the world when from the bowers Of forfeit Eden man went forth,With aching heart and blighted powers, To till the sterile soil of earth;Yet, even then, a glimmering light Faintly illumed the eastern skies,And, struggling through the mists of night, Beamed soft on Abel's sacrifice.It shone on Abram's eager eyes Upon Moriah's lonely height,And Jacob, 'neath the midnight skies, In hallowed dreams beheld its light;And o'er Arabia's desert sand Where weary Israel wandered on,In doubt and fear toward Canaan's land, The hallowed dawning brighter shone.Ages roll on 'mid deep'ning day,
