1902 Excerpt: ...rallying "to the colors" of the army of the Prince
of Peace--a mobilization of the Christian forces for this great
effort, this grand purpose, this auspicious triumph: the baptism of
modern democracy, and the adaptation of its lawful progress, aims,
hopes, thoughts and speech, to the everlasting Truth. With these
great truths in view the New Year brings to every Christian heart
newer duties and higher responsibilities. It is necessary to
translate into the language of the age the old truths of
Christianity so that the "modern mind may so assimilate them that
they will become a part of its very nature. It is by methods such
as these that its regeneration will come. THE THABOR OF PRAYER.
"Lord, it is good for us to be here." SWEET Presence that attends
our prayers, Invisible yet near; O patient Listener, awaiting ever,
And never aweary to hear--On the breath of petition my spirit
upsoars, To be lost in the love of the God it adores. Lip-words are
tokens for men: for Thee, Lord, Form the speech in my heart. Read
there what Thou likest, as Thou likest--content I, to be where Thou
art; To be as Thou wiliest, these few moments at least, When, with
Thee communing, all things else have ceased. Has flesh been
dissolved; or is Heaven a-leaning, With its Court and its splendor,
To the soul that is led to the mountain of prayer, To the will no
longer defiant offender?--To this worm that is man, to this slime
of the earth, Doth worship bring Eden, and God speak as at birth?
Is it Peter that says: let us build an abode; It is good to be
here? Nay, sweeter than Thabor is Thy whisper, O Lord: "It is I, do
not fear." And I feel as I kneel at the call of Thy voice All my
being rejoice--At the glow of Thy grace, at the flow of Thy peace,
