We call material this fair world of ours,

And so it seems to gross, material eyes, Say, what is honor ? 'T is the finest sense

That see no beauty in earth's forest flowers, Of justice which the human mind can frame,

No heavenly splendors in her sunset skies. Intent each lurking frailty to disclaim,

But are there not, in yonder gorgeous scene, And guard the way of life from all offense

A beauty and a grandeur not of earth?
Suffered or done.

A glory breaking from yon cloudy screen

Revealing to the soul its nobler birth?

Can things material such fair forms assume, HOPE'S SONG.

And thus delight and charm the human mind ?

Or doth the Spirit with its rays illume THE world may change from old to new, Their inmost depths, from matter now reFrom new to old again;
