“In spite of sorrow, loss and pain”

My poem of the week for my office door this week came from Adoniram Judson. It is a powerful statement of mission zeal- realistic, cost counted, hopeful because of the future promises.
I had assumed it was a piece from a larger poem but was unable to find any more of the poem. Perhaps this is all of it. If you know of a larger poem in which this is found, please mention it in the comments.

“In spite of sorrow, loss and pain
Our course be onward still;
We sow on Burmah’s barren plain,
We reap on Zion’s hill”
– Adoniram Judson
