569. P. M. Longfellow. Ordination.

1 Christ to the young man said: |Yet one thing more, If thou wouldst perfect be;
Sell all thou hast and give it to the poor,
And come and follow me!|

2 Within this temple, Christ again, unseen,
Those sacred words has said;
And his invisible hands to-day have been
Laid on a young man's head.

3 And evermore beside him on his way,
The unseen Christ shall move,
That he may lean upon his arm and say,
|Dost thou, dear Lord, approve?|

4 Beside him at the marriage feast shall be,
To make the scene more fair;
Beside him in the dark Gethsemane
Of pain and midnight prayer.

5 O holy trust! O endless sense of rest!
Like the beloved John,
To lay his head upon the Saviour's breast,
And thus to journey on!
