Excerpt from Improvement Era, Vol. 27: Organ of the Priesthood Quorums, the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Associations and the Schools of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; December, 1923 But 10, the Star! And wise men from the gates of morning dew! And then I gazed into the liquid eyes of Mary's Child. The Cherub of the Haloed Head looked in my face and smiled, And all my bitter hate was changed to loving sympathy, My enemies became my friends. Oh, I could not condemn! For, having caught the love divine, I loved the souls of men. I was a bigot, great and high, garbed in a robe of pride, I boasted of my power; that I could fight and conquer fear. With self-sufficiency, I bragged of having not a peer. But, 10! I followed where He led, up Olive's Mountain wide, I listened to a pleading voice in lone Gethsemane, My Father, if it be Thy will, remove this cup from me! And then my cloak of pride slipped off and fell upon the ground, And I was humble; just a child; with tender sympathy, And all who faltered by the way, henceforth were kin to me.
