Children played at the old man's feet, Three gsnda, blue-eyed girla; Their mother had pliyed in the cottage shade, With footsteps light and fleet, And waving golden curia. His heart was warm to that little hand, Bright in the setting sun, And he said, ''Oh, Lord, 1 trust thy word, I see the promised land, And 1 know my work is done.
