full and gladsome fruition
"Strangers and pilgrims" on the earth!
let your thoughts be in Heaven!
Let the gaps and cracks which trial,
in its varied forms,
may have made in the walls
of your frail earthly tabernacle —
only serve to let the rays
of the ineffable glory
shine more brightly through!
May these feeble foretastes
quicken your longings
for the full and gladsome fruition!”
