Marcus - Vision of Niagara
Sunday, November 13, 1927
 
I stood at Niagara's Falls today,

And viewed the wond'rous work of God;

The mighty river flowing by right o'way,

Yes, dashing o'er the shaking sod.



I looked again at Nature, and I saw

That God was everywhere in view:

The roaring river was of ancient law,

Like sun, and moon and stars-not new.



I learnt a valued lesson then and there,

To see the waters fall below,

For every drop was like a human tear

Thus shed in earthly passion's flow.



At once I tossed my head above to look,

To read the story of the sky;

It was so plain-this Nature's open book-

I could not doubt, there was no Why!



Again I looked with conscience, easy,

At Niagara's angry surge-

A living duplicate of Zambezi,

That beats time's funeral dirge.



And then I knew that all of life is one,

A march from cradle to the grave;

That every atom is a part of man,

Who passes-coward and the brave.
