Poem (undated; published in 1883) by John Dodson Taylor, Sr., my paternal great-grandfather

Text based on Acts 9:6, from the conversion of St. Paul

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Why thus has been my mission masked?

God’s purpose in me hid from view;

Have I ne’er with his servant asked

Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?

=====

That I may honor Lord, Thy name,

And sin in all its forms eschew–

Man’s only purpose, highest aim–

Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?

=====

That my life be one that shall prove

A life to right and virtue true,

And end at last in one above,

Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?
