MORAVIAN MISSION TO GREENLAND. •
RY MRS. SIGOURNEY.
The missions of the Moravians to Greenland
commenced more than a century since. First in
point of time in the great work of Missionary
enterprize, this exemplary sect stand also first
in di'gree of exertion, in comparison to their
number and means. They maintain in differ
ent parts of the world, 12 stations, two hundred
and eleven missionaries, and report, since the o
peningof their labors in this field of benevolence
tiie conversion ol more than forty thousand in
dividuals.
Why steers yon bold, adventurous prow,
Thus toward the artic zone,
Defying blasts that rudely seal
To Ocean’s breast, like stone?
Why tlare her crew those fearful seas,
Where icy mountains dash,
And make the proudest ship a wreck,
With one tremendous crash?
They come, who seek the spirit’s gold,
They dare yon dreary sphere;
And Winter startles on his throne,
Their strain of praise to hear:
They come salvation’s lamp to light
Where frost and darkness reign,
And with a deathless hope to cheer
The sons of want and pain.
!
And 1<>! the chapel rears its head
Beneath those stranger skies,
And to the^sweet-toned Sabbath bell
The thick-ribbed ice replies:
The Esquimaux does seek that clime
Where llowers forever bloom,
And with undaunted courage pluck
Their victory from the tomb.
When the last tinge of green departs,
The last bird takes its flight,
And the far sun no beam bestows
(>n that long polar night;
When in her subterranean cell,
To shun the tempest’s ire,
Lite shrinking guards the pallid flame,
That feebly lifts its spire.
The teachers of a love divine,
That firm, devoted band,
With no weak sigh of fond regret
ltecal their father-laud;
The peaceful smile that lights their brow
When storms of winter roar,
Doth better prove their heaven-born faith
Than learning’s loftiest lore.
