HE time and clime arc both afar
Wherein the wise men saw the star
Whose mystic light
Across the night
Has rendered all the ages bright,
And yet the story Is as young
As when it first was said and sung
With bated breath
To charm the sorrow out of death.
The shepherd band in Bethlehem
Heard angel voices call to them
Of him whose name
Will ever claim
The freshest laurels plucked by Fame.
Their tale, through countless ages told,
Is yet forever new and old.
And now, as then,
We hear again
Of "Peace on earth, good will toward men.'
HE things of Beauty and of Truth
Are dowered with eternal youth.
Are ever new
The ages through
And fresh with heaven's morning dew.
The story of the Christ Child's birth
Stirs something in us not of earth,
That lifts and heals,
Life's book unseals,
A man unto himself reveals.
Forevermore the Christ is born
In each new era's shining morn.
When men grow free
His star we see
The guiding light of liberty.
In each advance of truth and good,
Of helpfulness and brotherhood,
He leads the van
To build his plan
Of heaven in the heart of man.
jO We hear again To build his plan f$J?
