    A Hymn for Christmas Day

    Almighty Framer of the Skies!
    O let our pure devotion rise,
    Like Incense in thy Sight!
    Wrapt in impenetrable Shade
    The Texture of our Souls were made
    Till thy Command gave light.
    The Sun of Glory gleam'd the Ray,
    Refin'd the Darkness into Day,
    And bid the Vapours fly;
    Impell'd by his eternal Love
    He left his Palaces above
    To cheer our gloomy Sky.

    How shall we celebrate the day,
    When God appeared in mortal clay,
    The mark of worldly scorn;
    When the Archangel's heavenly Lays,
    Attempted the Redeemer's Praise
    And hail'd Salvation's Morn!

    A Humble Form the Godhead wore,
    The Pains of Poverty he bore,
    To gaudy Pomp unknown;
    Tho' in a human walk he trod
    Still was the Man Almighty God
    In Glory all his own.

    Despis'd, oppress'd, the Godhead bears
    The Torments of this Vale of tears;
    Nor bade his Vengeance rise;
    He saw the Creatures he had made,
    Revile his Power, his Peace invade;
    He saw with Mercy's Eyes.

    How shall we celebrate his Name,
    Who groan'd beneath a Life of shame
    In all Afflictions tried!
    The Soul is raptured to concieve
    A Truth, which Being must believe,
    The God Eternal died.

    My Soul exert thy Powers, adore,
    Upon Devotion's plumage sar
    To celebrate the Day;
    The God from whom Creation sprung
    Shall animate my grateful Tongue;
    From him I'll catch the Lay! read more »

    A Man's a Man for A' That

    Is there for honesty poverty
    That hings his head, an' a' that;
    The coward slave - we pass him by,
    We dare be poor for a' that! read more »

    I who, conceived beneath another star,
    Had been a prince and played with life, instead
    Have been its slave, an outcast exiled far
    From the fair things my faith has merited. read more »

    John Wasson

    Oh! the dew-wet grass of the meadow in North Carolina
    Through which Rebecca followed me wailing, wailing,
    One child in her arms, and three that ran along wailing,
    Lengthening out the farewell to me off to the war with the British, read more »

    The Dungeon

    And this place our forefathers made for man !
    This is the process of our Love and Wisdom,
    To each poor brother who offends against us--
    Most innocent, perhaps--and what if guilty ? read more »

    The Poor Man's Lamb

    NOW spent the alter'd King, in am'rous Cares,
    The Hours of sacred Hymns and solemn Pray'rs:

    Sonnet 05

    Hard by the road, where on that little mound
    The high grass rustles to the passing breeze,
    The child of Misery rests her head in peace.
    Pause there in sadness. That unhallowed ground read more »

    Frederick Douglass

    A hush is over all the teeming lists,
    And there is pause, a breath-space in the strife;
    A spirit brave has passed beyond the mists
    And vapors that obscure the sun of life. read more »
