  • Think It Not Strange

    Think it not strange, if he who stedfast leaveth
    All that he loveth for the love of Me,
    Be as the prey of him who rendeth, neveth,
    Breaketh and bruiseth, woundeth sore and gneveth,
    And carefully a spray of sharp thorn weaveth
    To crown the man who chooseth Calvary.
    Count it all joy, the blaming and the scorning,
    Ye who confess love's pure transcendent power;
    Stay not for speech, heed not the wise world's warning,
    Thine is an incommunicable dower.
    What will it be when sudden, in the morning,
    From brown thorn buddeth purple Passion flower?
