The Saint who first found grace to pen




The Saint who first
found grace to pen
The Life which was the Life of men,
And shed abroad the Gospelís ray,
His fame we celebrate today.


Lo, drawn by Pentecostal fire,
His heart conceived its great desire,
When pure of mind, inspired, he heard
And with his hand set forth the Word.


Then, clearly writ,
the Godhead shone
Serene and fair to look upon;
And through that record
still comes power
To lighten souls in deathís dark hour.


O holy mind, for wisdom fit
Wherein that Life of lives stood writ,
May we through minds of like accord
Show forth the patterns of our Lord.


And so may all
whose minds are dark
Be led to truth by good Saint Mark,
And after this our earthly strife
Stand written in the Book of Life.


Praise God Who made
the world so fair,
And sent His Son our Savior there,
And by His Holy Spirit wist
To teach the first Evangelist.
