Tlin snrrow iii!; orb of day wns sinking fnst,
And Iih dim rays a partinar zliriinn-r vast
Upon t!int lone and sterile monn!nin sil,
Where Christ, the gentle friend of sinners,
A solemn stillness brooded in the e.ir, -,
As if the earthquake still presided there;
And all the rest of nature held its breath,
When Nature's God had (Limned himself to
The voice of brutal morkerv was o'er.
And shouts of 'crucify him' rung no more;
Hut in the-depths of many a gloomy breast,
By conscience doomed to know no future rest,
Remorse had made himself a little I fell,
And 'crucify him' echoed like a knell.
The waving multitude retreated slow,
With hearts presaging sonic unearthly woe;
Hut many a fearful look was backward east,
As if each trembled lest he might be last.
Ami now uprose that solitary star,
Which erst to David's city, from afar,
Lighted the Eastern Magi with its ray,
To where, the Saviour in a manger lay.
Sweet Star! that hovered o'er the infant Lord,
Heboid the sad fulfilment of his word!
Rut still, for mercy, hold thy plac e in heaven,
The bright assurance of our sins forgiven.
On such a day did two, whose earthly love
Was knit by sympathy in things abov.c,
Turn from the City of the Saviour's Tomb,
And walk together to their distant home.
With steps uncertain, and with hearts sub
dued, Scarce conscious of the path that they pur
sued, " .
They wandered on, communing as they went,
Of Him on whom their thoughts were so
intent. ' t
And while they reasoned thus, a step drew
And a soft murmur, like an angel's sigh,
Said, in a tone that made their bosoms glad,
'Why talk yc so? and wherefore are vn sad?'
And thcnClcopas, answering, said for them,
'Art thou a stranger in Jerusalem,
And dost not know how Christ, the Lord
.Hy cruel priests and rulers crucified?
Indeed we trusted that it had been he,
Who should redeem our land's captivity;
Yea, to his sepulcher when wc had come,
The angels, watching by an empty tomb,
Said, as wc bowed ourselves and were afraid,
'Why seek yc thus the living mid the dead?'
Then in a voice'of pensive melody,
The radiant stranger made them this replv:
'Oh! slow of faith in what the prophets
Know ye not Christ has hi (lured as he ought,
To enter into glory? For 'tis said,
That he should die and raise him from the
Then with an eloquence which made, them
With a mysterious thrill of love and ftar,
He showed them all Redemption's wondrous
And told them of the 1 ove of God to until.
Now, as the shades of evening gathered fast,
They came to Emmaus, and he would have
Hut they constrained him, saying, 'Pray
For night is coming, and far spent the day.'
Then went he in with them, and sat at meat;
And as he broke the bread for them to eat,
Their eyes were opened at his blessed word,
And now they knew that they had seen the
