On The Heights

John Bannister Tabb

 Next Poem          

On Pisgah each must stand,
And in a fruitful land
Afar descried,
Behold with longing eyes
Some promised Paradise
Of bliss denied.

And each on Calvary
Upon his cross must be
A sacrifice;
Where, Christ-like, two between--
For Life or Death unseen--
The victim dies.
