[Written for the Sentinel]

"He is our peace"

SWEET words and clear, the great apostle penned,
Of him whose teachings bid all woes surcease,
All human hate and enmity to end,—
"He is our peace."

"He is our peace;" for love unselfed abides
In a vast circle of eternal calm.
To the great heart of Love it all confides,
Each prayer a psalm.

"He is our peace;" by him who came from God,
And went to God, know we our heritage.
Sons of the Highest, can we fear the rod
Of human rage?

He who, ere Abraham was, in Life abode,
Rent the dark veil, dispelled the spurious awe,—
His brethren, can we dread the cruel code
Of mortal law?

"He is our peace;" he took of things divine,
Showed them, and taught how good is Love's increase—
Took of Life's water, turned it into wine.
"He is our peace!"
