"Flee from men and look above thee......"

Looking for the source of this line and the rest of the poem!

Any help would be appreciated!

Many thanks,
Bev

Perhaps,


“Courage, brother! do not stumble,
Though thy path is dark as night;
There’s a star to guide the humble,
Trust in God and do the right.
Let the road be long and dreary,
And its ending out of sight;
Foot it bravely, strong or weary,
Trust in God and do the right.
Some will hate thee, some will love thee,
Some will flatter, some will slight;
Turn from man and look above thee,
Trust in God and do the right.”

-- Norman Macleod (1812-1872; Scottish minister, poet)
