"And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth," The old has passed away and the sun of righteousness arises with Healing in its beams. And So It Is..




The stars in their course 

Are nearing the dawn of peace. 

The purpling mountain-tops 

Of human love appear. 

Look ! Listen ! 

Above the battle's din you may hear 

The anthem of "Peace on earth." 

Good will to men is in the air. 

Out from the curling mists of the Pacific Sea 

That twist and twine 

Like things alive; 

From the glory of the upclimbing clouds 

Of the morning, that spill their jewels 

On the grass and flowers; 

In the liquid notes of the shuttle-throated mocking bird 

That pours its rippling prayers 

Into the ears of Deity; 

From the clean- trunked eucalypti, 

From orange blossoms and pendant pepper bough ; 

From the sweet-faced little children ; 

From the hearts of earnest men ; 

From the souls of women mothers ; 

From the planetary angles 

And rising constellations; 

From the heavenly hosts that 

"Declare the glory of God" ; 

From the inner sanctuary of cosmic law 

We may hear the song of Peace. 

Peace comes! 

Reach forth thy hands, brothers, sisters, 

Welcome thy Savior Peace. 



- DR. GEORGE W. CAREY
