Subject(s): Jesus Christ


Christ of the council chamber,
Christ of the ageless past;
Christ of the prophet's vision,
Christ that is first and last.

Christ of the angel's burden,
Christ of the Virgin's song;
Christ of the chosen people,
Christ of the pagan throng.

Christ of the lowly manger,
Christ of the Virgin Birth;
Christ of the wise men and shepherds,
Christ of the sin-cursed earth.

Christ of an infinite power,
Christ of undisturbed poise;
Christ of a boundless love,
Christ of eternal joys.

Christ of the leprous sinner,
Christ of the moral young man;
Christ of the carping Pharisee,
Christ of the wandering clan.

Christ of my lonely hours,
Christ when the troubles roll;
Christ when my friends have turned away,
Christ of my inmost soul.

Christ of my dying hour,
Christ of the other shore;
Christ as the ceaseless ages roll,
He's my Christ forever more!

in Poppies and Poinsettias
