THE GATE CALLED BEAUTIFUL

Acts 3:1-10

Today the sentinels are unawareAt the gate called Beautiful a host is heedingThe ancient dialogue left on the air—Peter's response, at the gate, to the lame man's pleading:"Silver and gold have I none; but such as I haveGive I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of NazarethRise up and walk." And he was healed. But the wavesOf the sound widened out into silence then; the pathLost purpose; the keepers closed and locked that gate.A Messiah will come—they rehearsed the ancient vow—To open wide its doors; let the centuries wait.But the gate called Beautiful is open now.    For blind men see, and deaf and dumb men talk,   In the name of Jesus Christ—we rise and walk.
