“Compassion-Height”

“Father, we love your eyes of glowing light.
Father, we love your heart of Compassion-Height.
Your soul champions love-cry for peace on earth.
You bless our weakling hearts with confidence-birth.
In you is quenched the breathless thirst of world-hours.
In you the UN's high perfection-tree flowers.”
