Time — at its moment's fulness, came ; And God made known His will ; That Joshua should rise to fame, — His master's place should fill. o murmuring word from Moses fell, When called to resign His post, hecause he knew so well, The order was divine:. And Joshua would not display A feign'd humility, In speechless awe, — and spun delay, — And canting strain, — " Why me ? " Brave men dispute not, but obey, Superiors commands : onejwrtfa honour, with, a M ay," Who rightly understands. So thus these brave and pious men, Gave up their wills to God ; One almost saw a seeptre then, — The other, — " heard a rod" o trickery's supplanting art, or violence to force, Obliged a matter to depart, And with a servant's curse. The servant took, with peace and awe, What God and man bestow'd : ot fain to rise above the Law, He meet subjection show'd. Averse from mirth, and pageantry, He bow'd before the Lord ; And let the congregation see, That he rever'd His word.
