(20 September 1902 – 7 March 1971 / Kingston upon Hull)

Conviction (I)


Christ died for God and me
Upon the crucifixion tree
For God a spoken Word
For me a Sword
For God a hymn of praise
For me eternal days
For God an explanation
For me salvation.

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
