The Indian Advocate
THE NAME OF MARY.
It is lovely today it was lovely of old
When the tale of the infant Redeemer was told
The chosen of God in her mission sublime
The sweetest of names in the history of time.
O'er the plains of Judea the night mists were chill
On Galilee's bosom the shadows lay still
When it woke in the midnight so solemn and mild
With the beat of a heart and the cry of a child.
And bright with the lustre and sweet with the tone
Of the angels that sang and the glory that shone;
Its echoes are soft through the haze of the years
With the breath of her sigh and the dew of her tears.
And still at the cradle and still at the hearth
From the manger of Christ to the ends of the earth
As radiant in glory as steadfast in gloom
It serves at His side as it waits at His tomb.
And many shall bless it as many have blest
From the morning of toil to the evening of rest;
And its fullness of meaning the music shall keep
While a Mary shall watch and a Mary shall weep.
Here’s what’s next.
