Text Appearing Before Image:
to make them climb To airy shelves of pasture green, That hang along the mountains side. Where grass and flowers together lean. And down through mists the sunbeams .slide. But naught can tempt the timid thingsThe steep and rugged path to try, Though sweet the shejdierds calls and singt..And seard below the pastures lie, Till in his arms his lambs he takes. Along the dizzy verge to go :Then, heedless of the rifts and breaks, They follow on oer rock and snow. And in these pastures, lifted fair.More dewy-soft than lowland mead, The shepherd drojis his tender care,And sheep and lambs together feed. This parable, by Nature breathed.Blew on me as the south wind free Oer frozen brooks that flow unsheathedFrom icy thraldom to the sea. A blissful vision through the nightWould all my happy senses sway Of the Good Shepherd on the height,Or climbing up the starry way. Holding our little lamb asleep. While, like the murmur of the sea, Sounded that voice along the deep,Saying, Arise and follow me.
