From The Times Dispatch, April 28, 1914. By W. C. Martin.
Men who have been born again,
Men who love their fellow-men,
Saturated with the Word,
Oft communing with the Lord;
Faithful shepherds of the sheep,
Sentinels who never sleep;
With a father’s tenderness,
An ambassador’s address;
Bold and strong to rule aright,
Patient with affront or slight,
Tactful with discordant folk;
Yet each word a hammer-stroke,
Prophets, speaking from above,
Full of faith and full of love.
