ONE- BY ONE.
OnI1 by one the sands are flowing,
One by one the mlonents fall.
Soune are coining, some are goin,
Do not strive to grasp them a 1.
One by one thy duties wait thee,
Let thy whole strength go to'each
Let no future dreams elate thee,
4earn thou first what these can teach.
')ne by one brights gifta of ea'ven,
Joys aile sent thee h -
Take them roddilyv
Ready, too, to le.
One by one thy griefs fleet thee,
Do not fear an armed band
One will fade is -'ih*rs greet thee,
Shadows passi r tr9ugh the land.
Do not look at lifc'd long sorrow,
See how small e uent's pain
(od will lielp the f6 tow orrow,
Every day begin again.
heiy hour that fleets so slowly,
1as its task to do or bear
Luminous the crown and holy,,
If thou set cach gen withieare.
Do not linger with regretting,
Or for passing hours despond
Nor.thy' daily toil forgetting,
Look too eagerly beyond.
.1lours are golden links, God's tokens,
Reching Heaven ; but one by one
Take thein lest the chain be bro'ken
Ere thy pilgrinage be done.
