The Message of the Baptist to Christ (II.)
Richard Crashaw (C.) (c. 1613–1649)
‘John sends to Jesus, asking, Art Thou He that should come, or look we for another?’—LUKE VII. 19.

AND dost thou ask, who in thy mother’s womb
So eager wast to hail Messiah come?
Thou ask, and of Himself, if Christ He be?
Why, even the very dumb can answer thee.
