Power for weakness outpoured.

Thrilling the soul like a song:
They shall mount
up as the eagles
On wide wings and swift wings and strong;

Leaping unwearied and free,
Till he comes

And the crown of his effort shall see.

What infinite comfort it brings!

The plodding dull round of the days,

The wearying halts and delays.

Who falter and stumble and fall,

This is the sweetest of all.
