THE HUMANITARIAN, SELECTION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Seeing how the world suffered and bled
Last Line: On the enduring tablet of the human heart.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ


Seeing how the world suffered and bled,
He said:
"My life shall bring
Help to that suffering."
Seeing how the earth had need
Of sheer joy and beauty
Above all bitter creed
Of cruel penitence and duty,
And how mankind
Thirsted and cried for joy it could not find,
His heart made quick reply,
"Men shall know happiness before I die!"

He who brings beauty to the lives of men
Needeth no tribute of recording pen.
His deeds are graven in a place apart,
On the enduring tablet of the human heart.
