[Written for the Sentinel.]

"THE TRUE LIGHT NOW SHINETH."

The wisdom of this world, so Paul once said,Is foolishness with God! And still men poreO'er lettered Dead Sea fruit and sigh the moreFor something lacking in the volumes read;There's a heart-hunger that demandeth bread!There is a thirsting for the perfect law;Yet vainly searching man tries many a door,Only to turn away uncomforted.

But now is come salvation, and the lightShineth again unto the seeing eyes,While Truth, joy-vibrant for the hearing ears.Gives peace to those new-learned to seek aright.And all the sorrow of the centuriesShall vanish in the reign of Love's own years.

We'd love to hear from you!
