BY CHARLES B. DRISCOLL
The message of the Christmas bells
Throughout the world is drowned
By screaming shot and bursting shell
On Europe's battleground!
What woeful sounds of human hate
Upon the breeze are borne;
What mourning millions sadly wait;
How many heartstrings torn!
O gentle Messenger of Love,
Sweet Child of Galilee,
Look down in pity from above;
Our hearts look up to thee!
That millions disregard the words
Which once proclaimed thy birth
To peaceful shepherds and their
"Good will and peace on earth!"
That peoples madly follow Cain;
That all earth's fertile sod
Cries out to thee of brothers slain,
Forgive us, Son of God!
That we have stumbled, Lord, we
Help us this Christmas day
To stem the tide of human woe,
And wash the blood away!
