J, Mary, unto whom the angel bore,
That wonelrous moonlit nigh',
On wings of light.
Message no mortal ever heard before,
Waking me Irom tlie sleep
Of maielen dreams to weep
And smile in startled wonder jould I
It meant such woe?
Blesseel the angel called me. I am blest !
Let no man dare to say
I am not, who can lay
My Holy Child's fair head upon my
He is mine own, mine own !
Let my lips make no moan
While it is theirs, his brow, his lips, to
Like this like this !
And yet and yet at lirst I did not
I was as others are.
A child with life a jar,
A maieleo ureuming in the dawn's young
And when the angel came,
Calling me by my ntiiir,
And told me what should be, I lilted np
My hands and look lhe cup I
Then came the slow, strange Ik tirs when
in me grew
Si use of diviner things,
My Soul found wiugs
Aud fiom its nest on migthy pinions fleiv;
'Sang the exulting song
That ages shall prolong
Sang the Magnificat, anel did not shrink
From lhe flooel's Liink !
But now I O mothers, I have grown toei
What say tlie prophets old
In scriptures mnndoldf
A dove that hatti no ne--t buneaih the
A lamb to slaughter led,
A king with uncrowned head.
A man acquaint with grid who knows
All human woes !
Despised rejected -and that bharper
Forsaken Iet nir be,
Y'e who would comfort me !
That word strikes deeper than a two
My little one, my child,
Forgive me that I smiled
When the proud Magi brought their gifts
Ou bendjd knee !
Dost thou know what is comiug? In
That seem to look af.ir,
Where God's own secrets are'.
There grows a kindling wonder and sur

Yet though high heaven be won,
