Excelsior

Excelsior
Be this my banner high
Against a lowering sky–
A cause for which to die.

Excelsior
Into the drumming rain,
Stumbling through rough terrain,
Rising above the pain.

Excelsior
Anywhere God may send,
No matter what the end,
With or without a friend.

Excelsior
Bearing my Savior’s cross,
Counting all gain but loss,
Purging pure gold from dross.

Excelsior
Till, with the feet of hinds,
God’s highest place I find,
Free there from all Earth’s binds.

 

—Libby
