j Now, ere 1 i-lopt, my pruT iihd Own that I uiighl o my way
I To do the will of Christ, uur Lord and Maater, day by day,
I And with this prayer upon my lips, I knew not that 1 dreamed;
Hut suddenly the world of right a paiulcmcnluai seemed.
t-'rom forest and from slaughter house, from bull ring and from sull.
There rose an anguished cry of pain, a loud, appealing tall.
Ah man -the dumb beast a next of kin with gun and whip and knife,
Went pleastire-fteeking through the earth, Dioou-oeiu on i a a lug lire,
i roni trap and cage and bouse aud zee and street that awful strain
Of tortured creature rote and swelled Ihe orchestra of pain.
And then methought the gentle Christ appeared to me, and spoke:
'! called you, but ye answered not "- and in my fear I woke.
Again I slept. 1 seemed to climb a hard, ascending track,
nd just behind me labored one whose patient, face was black.
I pitied him, but hour by hour he gained upon the path.
Me stood beside me, stood upright and then 1 turned la wrath.
"Go back!" I cried. "What right have you to walk beside me here?
For you are black and I am white.' I paused, suutk dumb with fear,
! Tor lo! the black man wan not I Lore, but Christ stow! i:i li ia place;
And oh! the pain, the pain, the pain that looked from that dear fac.
Then next 1 heard the roar of mills, and moving through the noise.
Like phantoms In an underworld, were little girls and boy.
Their backs were bent, ther browg were pale, their eyes were sad and olo,
Hut by the labor of their hands greed added gold to gold.
Again the Presenr and the Voice: "Behold the crimes I see,
As ye have done it unto me, so have ye done to me."
Now when I woke the air was rife with that sweet rhythmic din
Which tells the world that Christ haa come to save mankind from Bin,
And through the open door of church and temple passed a throng,
To worship Him with bended knee, with eermon and with song.
Hut over all I heard the cry of hunted, mangled things-
Those creatures which are part of God, though they have hoofs and wing.
I saw In mill and mine and shops the little slaves of greed
Iheard the strife of race with race, all sprung from one God-eeed
And then I bowed my head In shame, and in contrition cried:
"Lo, after nineteen hundred years, Christ still U Crucified."
