  • Wanted—Pastors

    From The Times Dispatch, April 28, 1914. By W. C. Martin.

    Men who have been born again,
    Men who love their fellow-men,
    Saturated with the Word,
    Oft communing with the Lord;
    Faithful shepherds of the sheep,
    Sentinels who never sleep;
    With a father’s tenderness,
    An ambassador’s address;
    Bold and strong to rule aright,
    Patient with affront or slight,
    Tactful with discordant folk;
    Yet each word a hammer-stroke,
    Prophets, speaking from above,
    Full of faith and full of love.
