CATHOLIC TALES AND CHRISTIAN SONGS

BY DOROTHY LEIGH SAYERS, AUTHOR OF "OP. I."


* "Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell,
A Catholic tale have I to tell,
And a Christian song have I to sing
While all the bells in Arundel ring."
H. BELLOC.


* And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, Master; and kissed Him. And Jesus said unto him, Friend . . .

JESUS, if, against my will,
I have wrought Thee any ill,
And, seeking but to do Thee grace,
Have smitten Thee upon the face,
If my kiss for Thee be not
Of John, but of Iscariot,
Prithee then, good Jesus, pardon
As Thou once didst in the garden,
Call me "Friend," and with my crime
Build Thou Thy passion more sublime.


* "Rex Doloris" is reprinted, by the courtesy of the Editor, from The New Witness.
