Martineau, Harriet - Arise, My Soul And Urge thy Flight 2



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Harriet Martineau – from Arise, My Soul! And Urge thy Flight

 All men are equal in their birth
Heirs of the earth and skies
All men are equal when that earth
Fades from their dying eyes

All wait alike on Him whose power
Upholds the life He gave
The sage within his star-lit tower
The savage in his cave


Tis man alone who difference sees
And speaks of high and low
And worships those and tramples these
While the same path they go

Ye great, renounce your earth born pride
Ye low, your shame and fear
Live as ye worship side by side
Your brotherhood revere

The source of the experience

Martineau, Harriet
