TO THE HEBREWS, by            
First Line: As truth, within a crystal globe is seen
Last Line: Salute! To you whose works so greatly bless!
Subject(s): Jews; Judaism


As Truth, within a crystal globe is seen
By one who holds the secret or desire,
So busy lives of earnest Jews inspire
The hearts of honest folk who are not mean
Or prejudiced by bigots' lies, or green
With envy's unrequited dreams. In dire
And faithful toil, the Jewish youth acquire
A skill by which their talents grow more keen.
No strength is spared, no time considered long
Or self-denial great -- if diligence
Can weave a masterpiece of nobleness.
In scientific field -- in art -- or song,
They give to all the world their eloquence.
Salute! To you whose works so greatly bless!
