A Voice in the Wilderness

As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. -- William O. Douglas

Gabriel's Message

The angel Gabriel from heaven came,
His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame;
'All hail', said he, "thou lowly maiden Mary,
Most highly favour'd lady,

'For known a blessed Mother thou shalt be,

All generations laud and honour thee,
Thy son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold,
Most highly favour'd lady,

Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head,

'To me be as it pleaseth God', she said,
'My soul shall laud and magnify His holy name,
Most highly favour'd lady,

Of her, Emmanuel the Christ, was born,

In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn,
And Christian folk throughout the world
will ever say:
Most highly favour'd lady
