[Written for the Sentinel]

The Christ-idea

Not only to a fewLone shepherds of the fieldThe night with glory shone,The heavenly anthem pealed;Not only to one ageThat peace on earth, good will;Not only to one raceWas Christ born to fulfil.

Is there no darkness now,No need of peace on earth?Is there no sunken senseThat waits a Saviour's birth?Is there no ear to listTruth's gentle, sweet appeal?No sinful now to save,No suffering to heal?

We'd love to hear from you!
