No, 34,               Nothing but Leaves.

"When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves."—Mark xi. 13.
Nothing but leaves ! No gathered sheaves
Of life's fair ripening grain :
We sow our seeds ; lo, tares and weeds :
Words, idle words, for earnest deeds :
Then reap with toil and pain,
Nothing but leaves ! nothing but leaves!
Nothing but leaves ! Sad memory weaves
No veil to hide the past:
And as we tr:ace our weary way,
And count each lost and misspent day,
We sadly find at last—
Nothing but leaves! nothing but leaves I
Ah ! who shall thus the Master meet,
And bring but withered leaves ?
Ah ! who shall at the Saviour's feet,
Before the awful Judgment-seat,
Lay down, for golden sheaves,
Nothing but leaves? nothing but leaves?
