Should Such a Nation Live?
Should such a nation live? Should colonies
Elope? They can't survive that crushing step
Of lobsters on the march. So many knees
And heels in motion. Surely these will get
The mastery again. This continent
Will serve the crown in perpetuity.
Yet here this nation is and so content
Are such a people, sure of victory,
Perhaps forgetful of the price we paid
That preachers might preach Christ without an act
Of uniformity. Unhindered aid
By gospel ministry--sometimes no tact,
But faithful gospel preaching does abound
and people seeking jubile astound.
Now free, what should this growing nation show?
Seek jubile in Christ and you will know.
