The Call.
169

O, not alone with outward sign

Of fear, or voice from heaven,

The message of a truth divine,

The call of God, is given;

Awakening in the human heart

Love for the True and Right,

Zeal for the Christian’s better part,

Strength for the Christian’s fight.

Though heralded by naught of fear,

Or outward sign, or show;

Though only to the inward ear

It whisper soft and low;

Though dropping as the manna fell,

Unseen, yet from above,

Holy and gentle, heed it well,—

The call to Truth and Love.
