St. Johns Cambridge

Written by: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow | Biography
 | Quotes (130) |
 I stand beneath the tree, whose branches shade
Thy western window, Chapel of St.
John! And hear its leaves repeat their benison On him, whose hand thy stones memorial laid; Then I remember one of whom was said In the world's darkest hour, "Behold thy son!" And see him living still, and wandering on And waiting for the advent long delayed.
Not only tongues of the apostles teach Lessons of love and light, but these expanding And sheltering boughs with all their leaves implore, And say in language clear as human speech, "The peace of God, that passeth understanding, Be and abide with you forevermore!"
