GOUDA C. M.
B. Tours, 1872
2 Like Him, through scenes of deep distress, Who bore the world's sad weight, "We, in their crowded loneliness, Would seek the desolate.
V
And that Thy followers may be tried, The poor are with us still.
4 Mean are all offerings we can make; But Thou hast taught us, Lord,
3 For Thou hast placed us side by side In this wide world of ill;
If given for the Saviour's sake, They lose not their reward.
Rev. William Crosswell, 1831

Rev. J. B. Dvkks, 1866
2  We hear the call; in dreams no more
In selfish ease we lie, But girded for our Father's work,
Go forth beneath His sky.                     4
3  Where prophets' word, and martyrs' blood,
And prayers of saints were sown,
r-
We, to their labors entering in,
Would reap where they have strown.
O Thou whose call our hearts has stirred!
To do Thy will we come; Thrust in our sickles at Thy word,
And bear our harvest home.
Rev. Samuel Longfellow, 1864
