Third Part

So from that unknown voice I courage found,
And girding close my pilgrim garb, with speed
Went on, nor to the thorns beneath gave heed,
Nor seemed to know how cold th' uneven ground
The dreary road ceased to affright me now.
What if the gloom is deep, how brighter far
Will shine my heavenly home; as yon pale star,
O'erhung by heavy clouds, will purer show
Resting alone upon the fair blue sky.
If harsh the sounds, upon this wearied ear
Will sweeter break the song, so full and clear,
The rich, deep swell of angel melody.
So I sped on, nor thought of further care,
Till whispered that soft voice, "Watch unto prayer."
