THE FATED RACE, by                    
First Line: What! Still reject the fated race
Last Line: Immanuel-was a jew
Subject(s): Heroism;israel;jews;sacrifices; Heroes;heroines;judaism

WHAT! still reject the fated race
Thus long denied repose,
What! madly striving to efface
The rights that Heaven bestows!

Say, flows not in each Jewish vein,
Unchecked, without control,
A tide as pure, as free from stain,
As warms the Christian soul?

Do ye not yet the times discern
That these shall cease to roam;
That Shiloh pledged for their return
Will bring his ransomed home?

Be error quick to darkness hurl'd!
No more with hate pursue,
For He who died to save a world—
Immanuel—was a Jew.
