- Luke

by Editor - William Robertson Nicoll

Four Gospels tell their story

St. Luke

Four Gospels tell their story to mankind,

And none so full of soft, caressing words

That bring the Maid of Bethlehem and her Babe

Before our tear-dimmed eyes, as his who learned

In the meek service of his gracious art

The tones which like the medicinal balms

That calm the sufferer's anguish, soothe our souls.

O. W. Holmes.
