The following poem by Alice Elliot appears full-page opposite this photograph by Nichol Elliot, Old Church, Bavaria:


“Nought but Love.”

NOUGHT but love in mortal lives,
Godlike suffers, glories, strives,
Solving all below, above, ⎯
Nought but love.


Infinite it lifts and heals;
God in Fatherhood reveals;
Filled with Tenderness and Might


Cleansing all through sacrifice,
Love doth on the cross suffice
Earth to raise, redeem, enthral,
Cleansing all:


Holding fast with Spirit pow’r,
Teaching, leading hour by hour,
Winged in viewless influence vast, ⎯
Holding fast.


Onward bent for goal sublime,
Love, beyond all place and time,
Works with one Divine Intent,
Onward bent.


Love Divine, Redeeming Might,
Lead us onward into light, ⎯
Human hearts that yearn to Thine, ⎯
Love Divine.
