A NEW BIRTH, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: My fate, my portion in the strife
Last Line: Submissive to thy will!
Subject(s): Conduct Of Life; Future Life; Retribution; Eternity; After Life

MY fate, my portion in the strife
Of this strange world, my after-life
With all its hopes and fears,
Rest on the issue of To-day!
Spirit of Goodness, chase away
The clouds that gather o'er me now,
The fire that wreathes my aching brow,
The intermitting thrill
That tingles through my frame; the throb
That heaves my breast; the thoughts that rob
Mine eyes of sleep! O, let me bow
Submissive to Thy will!
