[Written for the Sentinel]

The Seamless Dress

As she, amidst that thronging crowd,Was rudely jostled and delayedBefore she reached the Christ-endowed,And, touching, found her issue stayed;So we amidst the whirling throngOf mortal thoughts that daze the mind,Seem hindered, as we press along,When we the God-idea would find.And just as she was undismayedAnd overcame her trembling fear,So, too, must we be unafraidAnd hasten toward the God-ideaArrayed in robes of righteousness.What though we stand in nakednessAnd falteringly our need confess!Will not Christ wrap the seamless dressAbout our wayward consciousness?Then, like the Legion midst the tombs,Shall not we too, awaking, findThat garments from Love's weaving-loomsArray us in the likeness of the perfect Mind?
