White robes were given to every one of them.—Rev. vi, 11.
And who were those to whom white robes were^
given, Who stand so radiant on the plains of heaven ? They who on earth sustained the hallowed cross, Suffered and died in the Redeemer's cause.
May we not wear the martyr's crown in heaven; May not the martyr's robe to us be given; Although our lives we yield not at the stake, And though no fagot-fires around us wake ?
We may! we may! I have seen those on earth Who nobly sacrificed their land of birth— Friends, home, and country, freely gave up all, Even health and life at the Redeemer's call.
The angel answered, " These are they who passed Through earth's thick darkness, bore its howling
blast, Who meekly waded through affliction's flood, And washed their robes in the Redeemer's blood."
Then I, even I, may gain a crown like theirs! My soul is struggling on through waves of tears, And 0, its stains have all been washed away In the red stream that flowed on Calvary!
