[Written for the Sentinel.]

TRUTH'S SEAMLESS GARMENT

Why divide the seamless garment,Worn by one who, long ago,When on earth with simple grandeurBanished sin and want and woe?Why make spoils of Christlike virtues?Why cast lots for truth and love?These are jewels far too precious;Trust not chance their worth to prove.

Has our therapeutic knowledgeLessened sickness, death, or pain?Have we learned through man's inventionsHow we best can life maintain?Have men's theories accomplishedSin's destruction? Can they claimLess of sin and more of virtue,Without works done in Christ's name?

We'd love to hear from you!
