Vox Dei

John Bannister Tabb

 Next Poem          

"Some said it thundered."
The Father speaking to the Son,
In all the multitude was none
That caught the meaning true.
And yet "This word from Heaven," said He,
"Was spoken not because of me--
But came because of you."

Thus through the Son of Man alone
The mysteries of God are known;
Thus to the chosen few
With eye and ear attentive found
He speaks in every sight and sound,
The old becoming new.
