The Hope of My Heart

The Hope Of My Heart

"Delicta juventutis et ignorantius ejus, quoesumus ne memineris, Domine."



I left, to earth, a little maiden fair,
With locks of gold, and eyes that shamed the light;
I prayed that God might have her in His care
           And sight.

Earth's love was false; her voice, a siren's song;
(Sweet mother-earth was but a lying name)
The path she showed was but the path of wrong
           And shame.

"Cast her not out!" I cry.  God's kind words come —
"Her future is with Me, as was her past;
It shall be My good will to bring her home
           At last."


-John McCrae
