had walked life's way with an easy tread, had followed where comforts and pleasures led. Until one day in a quiet place I met the Mas- ter face to face.
With station and rank and wealth for my goal. Much thought for body but none for my soul, I had entered to win in life's mad race, when I met the Master face to face. I had built my castles, had reared them high, until their tow ers pierced the sky; I had sworn to rule with an iron mace, when I met my Master face to face. I met Him and knew Him and blushed to see that His eyes of sorrow were fixed on
me: And I faltered, and fell at His feet that day, while my castles melted and If vanished away. Melt ed and vanished and . in t he i r place, naught else did I see but the Master's face. And I cried aloud; "Oh, make me meet, to follow the steps of Thy wounded feet!" My thought is now for the souls of men, I have lost my life to find it again. E'er since one day in a quiet place, I met the Master face to face.
