THE SHADOW OF THE ROCK.         231
The Shadow of the Rock ! To angels' eyes This Rock its shadow multiplies, And at this hour in countless places lies. One Rock, one Shade, O'er thousands laid, Rest in the Shadow of the Rock.
The Shadow of the Rock ! To weary feet, That have been diligent and fleet, The sleep is deeper and the shade more sweet. O weary ! rest, Thou art sore pressed, Rest in the Shadow of the Rock.
The Shadow of the Rock! Thy bed is made; Crowds of tired souls like thine are laid This night beneath the self-same placid shade They who rest here Wake with Heaven near, Rest in the Shadow of the Rock.
The Shadow of the Rocki Pilgrim ! sleep sound ; In night's swift hours with silent bound The Rock will put thee over leagues of ground, Gaining more way By night than day; Rest in the Shadow of the Rock.
