LIFE'S STAIRWAY. .
BT I. A U.
Time present a thmlng stairway.
Leading upward from below,
Mounting up the gleumlng ladder
Countless million daily go;
Every day a itep we're gaining.
Every nlgbt we've climbed a round
Of thli ladder leading upward
From the cold material ground
At each fdep the prospect wldeus,
And we take a hrouder view
Of tho mad that lie before m.
Stretching out so grand aud new.
At each round our eyes grow clearer,
And we gaze with wonder back
O'er the ruai where weary million
Toil along life 'a beaten track.
At each .tup our way grow, shorter.
Though the stairway has no end.
Even when our soul, at last
With tbe Great Flrt Cause shall blend.
Then .till will our knowledge deepen,
Grander power will we gain,
While In all it. char rewalnionU,
Truth will be mado truly plain.
Aye, each day we're stepping heavenward,
Though to some the way looks dim;
Others travel In tho suulight
Chanting life ' eternal hymn.
Oh that we, turoughout that journey
O'er theupward scale of life.
Would but close our eye to error
Close our cars to warring strife.
Yes. Old Time presents a stairw ay
Which the feet ot all must climb
Stretching onward to the kingdom
To Perfections hei;ht sublime
Though we faint we must go forward
Must our dally course pursue;
Making way fur those who follow,
With the work they have to do.
By-aud i' will come the summons.
And we'll pass from mortal sight ;
But our march will .till be onward
To a nobler, loftier heigjit
We will rest uot while there's glory
Uor our spirit to attnlu:
But we'll bravely climb life's stairway
Till Infinitude we gain.
