WOLFE OF THE KNOLL.

'Twas done. Wild, desolating floods have o'er the island
    rolled
Full oft since then, not sparing even the shepherd and his
    fold.
That church still stands, and, to the eyes of those who wor-
    ship there,
Its simple walls and humble spire are objects not less fair
Than Zion's towers and bulwarks seemed to Israel's shep-
    herd king,
When by her glorious beauty moved such strains of praise
    to sing.
