JANUARY FIRST

LL are architects of Fate,

Working in these walls of Time;

Some with massive deeds and great, Some with ornaments of rhyme.

Build to-day, then, strong and sure,

With a firm and ample base; And ascending and secure

Shall to-morrow find its place.

The Builders

JANUARY SECOND
O thou sculptor, painter, poet!

Take this lesson to thy heart:
That is best which lieth nearest;
Shape from that thy work of art.

The Ladder of St. Augustine

JANUARY THIRD
All common things, each day's events,

That with the hour begin and end,
Our pleasures and our discontents,
Are rounds by which we may ascend.

The Ladder of St. Augustine

Will ye promise me here, (a holy promise !) to

cherish God more than all things earthly, and every man

as a brother? Will ye promise me here, to confirm your faith

by your living, Th’ heavenly faith of affection! to hope, to for

give, and to suffer, Be what it may your condition, and walk before God in uprightness ?

The Children of the Lord's Supper

JANUARY FIFTH

Bear through sorrow, wrong, and ruth,
In thy heart the dew of youth,
On thy lips the smile of truth.

Maidenhood

JANUARY SIXTH
Lead me to mercy's ever-flowing fountains;

For thou my shepherd, guard, and guide shalt be.

I will obey thy voice, and wait to see Thy feet all beautiful upon the mountains.

The Good Shepherd

JANUARY SEVENTH
Chill airs and wintry winds ! my ear

Has grown familiar with your song;
I hear it in the opening year, -
I listen, and it cheers me long.

Woods in Winter
