YULE TIDE.


Her voice is very soft and sweet,
 Her heart is brave and strong;
Her vassal, I would fain repeat
 Some fragments of her song.


A Birthday-song my heart would sing
 Its rapture to express;
My Father’s son must be a king,
 And share His consciousness.


Of God’s Self-knowledge comes the Word
 That utters all His Thought;
That Word made Flesh by all is heard
 Who seek as they are sought.
