303. Onward and Upward
By John Charles Earle
  
I PASS the vale. I breast the steep.
  I bear the cross: the cross bears me.
Light leads me on to light. I weep
  For joy at what I hope to see
When, scaled at last the arduous height,        5
  For every painful step I trod,
I traverse worlds on worlds of light,
  And pierce some deeper depth of God.
