Not illustrated. 1918 edition. Excerpt: ...never told, But seen deep in our mothers' eyes, as in their arms they hold The tiny beings nature gave, aye, of their selves a part. The God is love, and mother's love is God in human heart. The chiming of the bells proclaims this is the Sabbath Day, But nature e'er proclaims a song: Be good, and faithful stay. The Jesus wants not just one day that's set apart for Him And all the rest for greed and graft and other kinds of sin. When six days have been wrongly lived the seventh is not blessed E'en tho' all popes in Christendom proclaim it day of rest. The chiming of the bells is loud and says on land and sea; "Be good; Be good. One brotherhood this whole wide world should be." Then if we on our knees do pray today for humankind, Be sure that on the morrow we some suff'ring brother find; And, finding, give the word of cheer the hungry world most needs. No church can make a Christ-like man till he do Christlike deeds. Then church or no, it rests with us to be just what we will--A pious Sunday hypocrite who priestly pockets fill, Or one of Jesus' followera who loves his fellow man, And, loving all, does good for all, where e'er, when e'er he can. MY MESSAGE On the wings of the wind I send you A message I cannot say; For miles intervene 'tween you and me, 'Tween you, dear, and me today. As I speak it the treetops listen; I know that each cricket tries To chirp to its mate my message sweet; The man in the moon looks wise. And I can't see why he should listen To what I would say to you; There's not e'en one lass above us, dear, To whom he can speak and love, too. Oh, the night winds are swift and true, dear, So list what they say to you; 'Twill be but the old sweet song, dear heart, So old and yet always new. 'Tis "I love you, dear heart, I love you";...
