The sight of peerless worth…

Recently Frank Viola referred, in one of his blogs, to a little poem by Ora Rowen. The words touched me –  I thought I would share them with you, my friends…

‘Tis the look that melted Peter

‘Tis the face that Stephen saw

‘Tis that heart that wept with Mary

Can alone from idols draw

 

What has stripped the seeming beauty

From the idols of the earth? 

Not a sense of right and duty

But the sight of peerless worth

 

Not the crushing of those idols

With its bitter void and smart

But the beaming of His beauty

The unveiling of His heart

May we be captivated…
