b 24-B--Cafhol;c Norfhwesf Progress December 14, 1962 The thing mankind is seeking blindly for After the devastation of mad war Is the harmony of nations, the white peace: That miracle whose actions should increase Goodwill among the peoples of the earth. We have forgotten how the angels sang Their clear hosannas, the triumphant words that rang Above the fields that first far Christmas night. Too long we have forgotten how the white Stars echoed to the peace that was proclaimed, To the goodwill chorus, and that Christ was named The Ambassador from heaven to all men. Oh, that the angels' song might ring again! Oh, that mankind might see the dark clouds rift, And accept with childlike faith God's perfect gift*. If the troubled earth would turn and kneel as one In sincere reverence before God's Son, Borders would fade, and dark suspicions cease - There would be harmony, there would be peace. --Grace Noll Crowell (Poem reprfnecl from Chrfsfmas: An Arner;co Annual of Chr;sfmcls Leroure end Art; Augsburg Publsh;ng Houset 1947; Yaf. I7), May the Peace and Joy of Christmas Be Yours Throughout the Year... Seattle University
