On the strong and the weak, on the rich and the poor The feet of the humblest may walk in the field
The voice of the Christ child shall fall; Where the feet of the holiest have trod,
And to every blind wanderer open the door This, this 1s the marvel to mortals revealed
Of a hope that he dared not to dream of before, When the silvery trumpets of Christmas have pealed,
With a sunshine of welcome for all. That mankind are the children of God.
