Good Words 1860
"Faint, Yet Pursuing"


All day among the cornfields of the plain,
Heaping a mighty harvest to the Lord,
Our hands have bound the sheaves; we come againó
Shout for the garners stored!

All day among the vineyards of the field,
Our feet have trodden out the red, ripe vine;
Sing, sing for hearts that have not spared to yield
A yet more purple wine!

All day against the spoilers of our land,
Our arms made bare the keen and glittering sword;
None turned back, none stay'd the lifted hand;
Sing, sing unto the Lord!

All day besot by spies, begirt with foes,
Building a House of Holinessóby night
We watch'd beside our weaponsóslow it rose ;
Sing, sing from Zion's height!           D. G.
