September 15

IN weariness and painfulness St. Paul
   Served God and pleased Him: after-saints no less
Can wait on and can please Him, one and all
   In weariness and painfulness,

   By faith and hope triumphant through distress:
Not with the rankling service of a thrall;
   But even as loving children trust and bless,

Weep and rejoice, answering their Father's call,
   Work with tired hands, and forward, upward press
On sore tired feet, still rising when they fall,
   In weariness and painfulness.
