|145||Where Cross the Crowded Ways of Life|
|(GERMANY. L. M.)|
|Frank Mason North, 1905||William Gardiner's Sacred Melodies, 1815|
Where sound the cries of race and clan,
Above the noise of selfish strife,
We hear thy voice, Son of man !
On shadowed thresholds dark with fears,
From paths where hide the lures of greed,
We catch the vision of thy tears.
Still holds the freshness of thy grace ;
Yet long these multitudes to see
The sweet compassion of thy face.
Make haste to heal those hearts of pain;
Among these rest-less throngs abide,
tread the city's streets again ;
And follow where thy feet have trod;
Till glorious from thy heaven above,
