Who in his heart rebels Has never ears to hear The morning and the evening
bells On yonder shores so clear.

For work communion is With God's one order here, And all the secret
melodies Which fill our lives with cheer.

In action day by day King David's manhood grew, A character to live for
aye, It was so strong and true.

Hordes of misrule became As stubble to the fire, Till songs of praise like
leaping flame Burst from his sacred lyre.

He grappled with all rude And unpropitious things: A garden from the
solitude Smiled to the King of kings.

And fiercer yet the strife With mighty foes within, Who stormed the
fortress of his life And triumphed in his sin.

* * * * *

Good out of Evil.

True David halted not When sin had cast him down, Upon his royal life a
blot, Death reaching for his crown.

His work was but half done; A man of action still, He struggled in the
gloaming sun To do his Maker's will;

Till in the golden light Great words began to shine: _In sorrow is exalting
might, Repentance is divine_.
