Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
 
Jews
Anonymous
 
PRIDE and humiliation hand in hand
  Walked with them through the world where’er they went,
Trampled and beaten were as the sand,
  And yet as unshaken as the continent.
 
For in the background, figures vague and vast,        5
  Of patriarchs and of prophets rose sublime,
And all the great traditions of the past
  They saw reflected in the coming time.
