THE COMING OF HIS FEET.
In the crimson of the morning, in the
whiteness of the noon,
In the. nniber glory of the dny's
retreat,
In the moonlight robed in darkness,
or the gleaming of the moon,
1 listen for tho coming of His feet.
1 have hoard hia weary footsteps in
the sands of Galilee,
On the temple's marble pavement;
on tho street, * ?
With the weight of/sorrow, falt'ring
up the slope/of Calvary,
The sorrow of the coming of His
feet.
Down the minster isles of splendor
from betwixt the cherubim.
Thru' the wondering throng, with
motion strong and fleet,
Sounds his victor tread approaching
with n music far and dim,
The coming of his foet.
Senndnlcd not with sheen^of silver,
girdled not with woven gold,
Weighted not in shimmering gems
and odors sweet.
White-winged nnd shod with glory
in th0 Tabor light of old,
The giOij- nf the. coming of His foet.
He is coming, o my spirit, with his
everlasting peace!
With his blessedness immortal and
complete,
He is coming, o my spirit, and His
coming brings release,
i listen for the Coming of His feet.

A Visit From St. Nicholas
'Twos the night before Christmas nnd nil through the house
s Not a creature wns stirring, not .even u niouau,
The stockings were hung by tho chimney with cure,
In hopes thnt St. Nicholas would soon bo thero.
The children were nestled nil snug in their beds.
While visions of sugar plum:: danced in their heads.
And mama in her kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our bruins for n long winter's imp.
When out on the lawn there rosu such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to sou what wns the mal
Away to the window I How like a Hash,
Tore open tho shutters ami throw up the sn.li;
Tho moon on the breast of tliu new lallen snow
Gavo a luster of mhlday to the objocts below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should upponr
But a minnture sleigh nnd eight tiny reindeer,
With a little old driver, ro lively nnd quick,
1 knew in a moment it must be old St, Nick
More rapid thnn eagles bin courses they came,
And ho whistled and shouted und called them i>. name!
"Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now Prancer and Vixen!
On Comet! On Cupid! On Donner unit Bllxon!"
To the (op of the porch, to the top of the wall
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane lly,
When they meet with an obstnclc mount to the Buy
So up to the housotop tho coursers they Hew,
With a sleigh, full of toys, nnd St. Nicholas, too;
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of onch littlo hoof
As I drew in my head and wns turning around
Down tho chimney St. Nicholas enmc with n bound.
He was dressed nil in fur from his bond to his foot
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes nod soul;
A bundle of toy.i he hud Hung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his puck.
Iiis eyes, how they twinkled! Iiis dimples, how merry!
His cheeks were like roses; his nose like u cherry;
His droll little mouth wuS drawn up like u bow,
And the heard on his chin wns white ns snow
Tho stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head liko n wreuth
He was chubby und plump right jolly old ulf
A wink of his eyo nnd a twist of his bend,
lie spoke not a word, but went straight to his wurU,
And filled nil tho stockings; then turned with li ji i;..
And laying his linger aside of his nose,
And giving u nod, up the chimney he rose,
lie sprang to his sleijjh, to his team gave u whistle,
And away they all Hew like the down of u tili itle.
But I heard him exclaim, ero they drove ot t of sigli
