Some are an-hungered, some athirst
Some are borne down with heavy woe.
Some are of sin and shame accursed,
But in the Eve-star's heaven-glow
All are befriended, each has heard
Messages that bid him rejoice.
We are the ones that speaK the Word
Brother, my brother, it is His voice.
We go a-shuddering to the door
Sorrowing over all the want, '
Giving the gifts brought of our store 4
Into the hands by pain made gaunt ?
Nay, 'tis not ours that find the way
Into the darK and noisome street,
Bringing the cheer of Christmas day
Brother, my brother, it is His feet.
Child lips to laughter alien-strange
Show us a miracle in this while,
When over them there comes a change
When for the once they Know a smile.
Baubles we bring are jewels fair
Found in the distant wonderlands.
ThinK you 'tis we who bring them there? .
Brother, my brother, it is His hands:
Pulsing to us through the centuries
Murmurs forever in one deep Keys
"As ye have done it to one of these
So have ye done, it unto Me,"
Give as we 6an, khd gladly, too
Out of the soul does the impulse start -
What is the throbbing in me and you?' '
Horses arid Eggs.
