Title: "CATHERAL"

"CATHERAL SPIRES OF GOLD AGLOW
IN WINTER'S SUNSET SEEM TO SHOW
TO EACH ONE GAZING TOWARD THE SKY
THAT ALL IS WELL, AND GOD IS NIGH."

"AND VOICES FROM THIS HALL OF LOVE
RESOUND DEEP NOTES TO HIM ABOVE
OF FEAR AND FAITH, UNDYING GRACE
THAT ALL MIGHT VIEW THE MASTER'S FACE."

"ON DAYS OF WORSHIP, EVERY DAY
THE FAITHFUL ENTER, KNEEL AND PRAY
THEIR PRAYERS FROM CONTRITE HEARTS TO HE
WHO IS OUR GOD IN TRINITY."

"THO' TIME MAY RAVAGE EACH IN TURN,
THO' SIN MAY DEEP IN EACH SOUL BURN;
LOVE, FAITH AND HOPE IS NOT OUR LOSS
WITHIN THE SHADOW OF THE CROSS."

"REMEMBER GOD'S GREAT GIFT TO THEE---
BE WORTHY THEN. FORGET NOT HE!"
