FORGIVENESS OF INJURIES          133
Sweet Faith! and can this pledge be true ? And is the duty hard to do ? No one, dear Lord ! hath done to me Such wrong as I have done to Thee. Why should not all men go to Heaven? They who forgive will be forgiven.
Thine offers, earth ! to this are dull, •Full mercy to the merciful: — Oh joy to every soul that lives ! Such beautiful bright words He gives, Whose royal promise cheapens Heaven,— Forgive, and you shall be forgiven.
Then listen to us, Jesus, Lord!
See how we take Thee at Thy word :
Oh as we hope with Thee to live,
So from our hearts do we forgive;
And from this hour we do not know
The thought, the thing men mean by foe.
Yes ! saved and saints we all will be ;
All of us, Lord! will come to Thee ;
Dear Heaven ! the work for thee is done,—
How easily, how sweetly won !
Yes ! thou art ours, eternal Heaven !
For we forgave, and are forgiven.
