               FIDELITY TO HUMANITY.                   319

         Soon may the nations humbly bow,
            In adoration at his feet,
         With reverend heart and holy awe,
            Our Lord and Saviour's message greet.
         Fair as the moon, bright as the sun,
           0, may our Bethel ever be !
         Her people near unto the Lord,
           Noble, and grand, and strong, and free.
         Now, with a ringing, earnest shout,
           May we resolve to do or die,
         And o'er our foes within, without,
           March on to signal victory!
         Forever like a beacon light,
           May mother Bethel ever stand,
         To guide the wayward feet aright,
           And bless and brighten all the land.
         Our rising Pulpit, School and Press,
           A triple Light, shall ever shine,
         To guide, to comfort, and to bless,
           Thro' all the years of coming time.


                                IX.

                      FIDELITY TO HUMANITY.

                       BY REV. R. GRAHAM.
   One of the great hindrances to the prosperity of humanity
is the lack of fidelity.  We cannot be true to ourselves unless we
are true to others. There is a moral and religious principle which
should govern the lives of all men, imposing upon them the
obligation of being true to themselves.  It was well said by
Shakespeare: "To thine own self be true, and it shall follow, as
the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."
The work of man should be in harmony with the work of Christ
His mission on earth was to save men and to teach them how
to be true to themselves.  In His humanity, He was the true
man. In order to be true to ourselves, we should represent
Him in all our dealings with our fellow-men.
  That same mind must be in us which was in Christ Jesus.
Such a mind will cause us to keep in practice the golden rule,
and do unto others as we would have them do unto us.
  The opposition to right is so strong, that man cannot afford
to face the enemy without being in possession of such a mind.
One of the causes which prevent men from being true to them-
selves, is the practice of bad and sinful habits, such as strong
