Stand like an anvil, when the stroke

Author: Bishop Doane Hymnal: Manual for the chapel of Girard College #231 (1891) Hymnal Title: Manual for the chapel of Girard College Lyrics: 1 Stand like an anvil, when the stroke Of stalwart men falls fierce and fast; Storms but more deeply root the oak, Whose brawny arms embrace the blast. 2 Stand like an anvil, when the sparks Fly far and wide a fiery shower; Virtue and truth must still be marks Where malice proves its want of power. 3 Stand like an anvil, when the bar Lies red and glowing on its breast; Duty shall be life's leading star, And conscious innocence its rest. 4 Stand like an anvil, when the sound Of pond'rous hammers pains the ear; Thine but the still and stern rebound Of the great heart that cannot fear. 5 Stand like an anvil; noise and heat Are born with earth and die with time; The soul, like God, its source and seat, Is solemn, still, serene, sublime.
