« Prev On Calvary together Next »

The late Rev. Paxton Hood has made the name and style of CHRISTMAS EVANS familiar to English readers. He allowed his fancy free range in allegory; and this verse admirably represents the boldness of his style:

On Calvary together

Two flames were seen to shine;

A flame of love for sinners,

A flame of wrath Divine:


Their smoke on high ascended,

And hid the stars of light;--

Between the two flames, dying,

Was Jesus--wondrous sight!
