AARON. DANIEL.Exodus xxix.; Leviticus viii. Daniel vi. 10-23.Jehovah's great high priest he stands When among raging lions cast,Before the sacred shrine, Was Daniel sore dismayed ?The sacrifice to offer up No well he knew the God he servedWhich is a type divine. Had all their fury stayed.BALAAM. ELIJAH.Numbers xxii.; 2 Peter ii. 16. I Kings xvii. 1-7.Oh, foolish Balaam not to see In Cherith's valley lone he mused,God's angel in the way With none to bring him bread;Forbear to smite, and kneel thee down, But twice a day God's ravens cameA suppliant, to pray. And the great prophet fed.CHRIST. THE FLOOD.John x. 1 Genesis vii.I am the Shepherd of the sheep! Lo, day by day the waters rose,Will ye not hear My voice, O'er mountains, valleys, leas,And in the wonders of My love, Until the ark alone remained,With faith and hope rejoice ? Secure upon the seas.I-
GOLIATH. JOSEPH.i Samuel xvii Genesis xxxvii. 18-28,In vain the strength of man against "Behold, the dreamer comes!" they cry;The servant of the Lord; They seize and bind him fast,And thus Goliath prostrate lies And in a darksome yawning pit'Neath stripling David's sword. Is gentle Joseph cast.HAGAR. KORAH.Genesis xxi. 9-21 Numbers xxvi. 9-11.Away into the wilderness When Korah and his companyHagar and Ishmael stray; Against God's priests conspire,Let not their hearts despond, for God Earth opens wide, and wretchedlyIs with them on the way. They perish in the fire !ISAAC. LOT.Genesis xxii. 3-14. Genesis xix.; Luke xvii. 32Prepared to sacrifice his son Obeying his Creator's will,The faithful Abr'ham stands, Lot went, nor looked behind;When, lo the angel of the Lord Not so his wife, and, lacking faith,Restrains his trembling hands. For worldly joys she pined.

MOSES. PETER.Exodus ii. Matthew xiv. 22-32."Where waved the bulrush on the bank "Help, Lord, I sink!" thus Peter cries,Of Egypt's famous Nile, And fears the yielding wave;Lay the babe Moses, and his face But be thou strong in faith, and knowShone with a radiant smile. The Lord his own can save.NOAH. QUEEN ESTHER.Genesis viii. 7-12, Esther v. i-14.Back to the ark on rapid wing Before the dreadful Persian kingFlies Noah's welcome dove, Fair Esther trembling stood;And in her mouth an olive-leaf When God sent forth His loving grace,As emblem of God's love. And changed the monarch's mood.OBADIAH. REBEKAH.i Kings xviii. 3, 4. Genesis xxiv."When wicked Jezebel pursued Be ready with the helping hand,The prophets of the Lord, And succour the distrest;By faithful Obadiah concealed, And, like the maid Rebekah, thouThey 'scaped the murd'rous sword. In blessing shalt be blest.i ',
SAMUEL. THE WISE MEN.i Samuel iii. 19. Matthew ii. 1-3.At morn and eve young Samuel knelt, Bright shone the star, the eastern star,And sought the Lord in prayer; With soft and gentle ray,Do thou the same, and He will free To guide the wise men to the caveThy heart from every care. Where infant Jesus lay.THOMAS. YOUTH.John xx. 24-29. Acts xx. 9.O doubting Thomas, must thou thrust Deaf to the preacher's voice he slept,Thy hand into His side ? And fell as he were dead;Canst thou not own thy Lord, thy King, But Paul with prayer brought back theThe Saviour crucified ? That momently had fled. [lifeTHE VIRGINS. ZACOHEUS.Matthew xxv. 1-14 Luke xix. I.-o.O foolish virgins, who so long Zaccheus in the sycomoreWith untrimmed lamps would wait, Had found a vantage-place,The door is shut, and for the feast Whence he might hear the Master'sYe come too late, too late! And gaze upon His face. [voice,
