“The Greatest of These Is Charity”
By Harriet M. Skidmore
THREE kindly angels, crowned with light,
Illumine our way through darkest night.
Safe shall they rest in realms above
Who follow Faith, and Hope, and Love.
But Hope must die, her mission done,        5
Where blissful certainty is won.
And Faith, when “face to face” we see,
Is lost in glad Reality.
One fadeth not, one dieth ne’er,—
But, robed in Heavenly radiance fair,        10
Shall keep through endless years above
Her glorious name—Immortal Love!
