Thomas Babington Macaulay (Томас Бабингтон Маколей)


Epitaph on Henry Martyn


HERE Martyn lies. In Manhood's early bloom
The Christian Hero finds a Pagan tomb.
Religion, sorrowing o'er her favourite son,
Points to the glorious trophies that he won.
Eternal trophies! not with carnage red,
Not stained with tears by hapless captives shed,
But trophies of the Cross! for that dear name,
Through every form of danger, death, and shame,
Onward he journeyed to a happier shore,
Where danger, death, and shame assault no more.



Thomas Babington Macaulay's other poems:
  1. Lines Written in August
  2. The Last Buccaneer
  3. Lines to the Memory of Pitt
  4. Ivry
  5. The Armada
