Excerpt from VersesThe vanished yesterdays by one and oneAre welded in the golden chain of yearsLife pulsates newly with each morning sun-Out in that yesterday, Gods voice was heard,Each age its record holds of hopes and fears.Chaos to orderMoreExcerpt from VersesThe vanished yesterdays by one and oneAre welded in the golden chain of yearsLife pulsates newly with each morning sun-Out in that yesterday, Gods voice was heard,Each age its record holds of hopes and fears.Chaos to order changed at His command,Darkness and light obeyed His spoken word,Perfect fulfillment of law, divinely planned.Beneath Gods smile came earth fruitage fair,Creatures both small and great no discord knew,Their plan and purpose, in Gods care-His perfect law forever in their view.Paradise, Gods gift of love, was set apartFor man in Gods own image made and blest-The broken law, a Fathers grieved heart,Man from the Blessed Presence sent bereft.Then darkness fell, and strife was born,Discord supplanted peace and veiled Gods face,With war and blood the soul of man was torn,And Paradise, the Garden Perfect, lost to human raceThe days as lengthened shadows sped away,Time, ceaseless weaver, tossed the shuttle fast,Thru earths dark night, hope shone with clearest ray,The age of war and strife must cease at last,Above Judeas plain, night stars shone clear,The weary shepherds slept upon the ground,The night wind ebbed to silence, the Angel Choir appearA radiance and splendor filled earth and sky around.Fear not, oh heart of man, rejoice and sing.For unto you this day in Bethlehems lowly mangerIs born the Prince of Peace, your Savior, King,About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
