ON SYRIAN HILLS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: It is said the bedouins cry, on the syrian hills, a clear
Last Line: And the ages they hear him yet, and his voice do the nations know.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ; Nations; Peace; War

IT is said the Bedouins cry, on the Syrian hills, a clear
Loud summons to War, and the tribes far distant hearken and hear,
So wondrous rare is the air, so crystal the atmosphere.
Their call is to arms; but One, in the centuries long ago,
Spake there for Peace, in tones that were marvelous sweet and low,
And the ages they hear Him yet, and His voice do the nations know.
