Hasten I to Goodness

W Homer

Winslow Homer

Hasten I to goodness door
A place surely I’ve been before
Alas i found it was not akin
To the goodness I have labored in.

God has paved a goodness path
That rents the veil of darker wrath
And shown to me His graceful means
My eyes absorb where heart thus leans.

I pray for some who cannot discern
Goodness unique in absolute yearn
For on a rock a tree does stand
Where death fades in reprimand.
