BETHLEHEM GATE


Through ever-open gates they press,
 A new and living way they tread,
 So gain they the true ’House of Bread,’
A garden for a wilderness.


A flight it seems to us; to them
 It is a going forth to win
 The world from Satan and from sin,
And build the New Jerusalem.


Lord Christ! for every seeking soul
 Thou art Thyself the Door, the Way;
 All, all shall find one coming day
Thy Heart their everlasting goal!

Loch Leven: 1884.
