DR. A.R. THOMPSON

( - 1895)

Sing aloud, children! sing to the glorious King
  Of Redemption, who sits on the throne,
    For the seraphim high veil their faces, and cry,
      And the angels are praising the Son.
        With His raiment blood-dyed, and with wounds in His side,
          He returns like a chief from the war,
            When His champion blow hath laid death and hell low,
              And hath driven destruction afar.
      - [Easter]

The last words of the pious Henry Holmes, of Boston, were, "Lord Jesus, come quickly." In their primary sense, as referring to Christ's personal and glorious advent, these words have often dropped from the lips and pens of earnest believers. In a somewhat desponding mood, Martin Luther broke out, "May the Lord Jesus come at once! Let Him cut the whole matter short with the Day of Judgment; for there is no amendment to be expected." The martyr Ridley wrote: "The world, without doubt--this I do believe, and therefore say it--draws toward an end. Let us with John, the servant of God, cry in our hearts unto our Savior, Christ, 'Come, Lord Jesus come.'"
      - [Advent]

Whist, then, delightful whist, my theme shall be.
      - [Cards]

Christ is our Passover!
  And we will keep the feast
    With the new leaven,
      The bread of heaven:
        All welcome, even the least!
      - We Keep the Festival,
        from the Roman Breviary [Easter]
