    Praise to Christ who feeds the hungry, frees the captive, finds the lost,
    Heals the sick, upsets religion, fearless both of fate and cost.
    Celebrate Christ’s constant presence—Friend and Stranger, Guest and Host.

    We are the music-makers,
    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
    Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
    And sitting by desolate streams;
    World-losers and world-forsakers,
    On whom the pale moon gleams:
    —Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy (1844–1881)
