THE DAYSMAN


And every man, God's child and priest,
 Is pledged to ministry divine,
Who sees the Ruler of life's feast
 Turn water into wine;


Who hears the Father's voice above,
 The Spirit's whispering within;
Who knows the Messenger of love
 The Conqueror of sin.


Responsive to God's call, our Prayer
 Art Thou, dear Lord, whene'er we pray;
So always now, and everywhere,
 My heart keeps holiday.


On the Danube:

Feast of the Holy Name, 1883.
