THE DELAYED TRYST

From the January 1920 issue of The Christian Science Journal


For centuries have we been stupid, Lord,      And to thy meaning not a little blind; True, we have daily prayed, Thy kingdom come,      And waited idly on the words, resigned To leave fulfillment unto thee alone.      Yet scanning them in fuller later light, We see thou didst appoint for us a share      To haste that coming, had we heard aright.
