Advent reflection

"From Sinai's cliffs it echoed; it breathed from Buddha's tree;
It charmed in Athens' market; it hallowed Galilee;
The hammer stroke of Luther, the Pilgrims' seaside prayer,
The oracles of Concord, one holy Word declare."
William Channing Gannett

This feels like a hymn to me, Fausto. Is it?

Ms. Kitty, it's the second stanza of "It Sounds Along the Ages", #187 in your grey hymnal.

Thanks for the reference----I knew it sounded familiar.
