IF WE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 9 January 1914
IF WE KNEW. ( Could we tout draw back the curtains That surround each other's lives, i See their naked heart and spirit, Know what spur the action gives; Often we should find it better, Purer than we judge wo should— We should love each other better, IE we only understood. ! Could we judge all deeds by motives. See the good and bad withjn, Often we should love the sinner, All the while Ave loathe the sin. Could we know the powers working To overthrow integrity, We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. If we knew the care and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain; Would the grim external roughness Seem, 1 wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we hindorf Would we pity where we blame? Ah! we judge each other harshly, Knowing not life's hidden force; Knowing not the fount of action Is less turbid at its source. Seeing not amid the evil All the golden grains of good; Oh! we'd love each other better....
