Text Appearing Before Image:
nion over palm and pine— Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget—lest we forget ! The tumult and the shouting dies—The Captains and the Kings depart— Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,An humble and a contrite heart. Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget—lest we forget ! Far-called, our navies melt away— On dune and headland sinks the fire— So, all the pomp of yesterdayIs one with Ninevah and Tyre ! Judge of the Nations, spare us yet, Lest we forget—lest we forget ! If, drunk with sight of power, we loose Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe-Such boasting as the Gentiles use,Or lesser breeds without the Law— RECESSIONAL 129 Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,Lest we forget—lest we forget! For heathen heart that puts her trustIn reeking tube and iron shard— All valiant dust that builds on dust, And guarding calls not Thee to guard— For frantic boast and foolish word, Thy Mercy on Thy People, Lord ! Amen. Rudyard Kipling. XXV—BELSHAZZAR

|N Daniel there was noblemish. Although acaptive, he was loved andhonored as long as KingNebuchadnezzar lived.Nebuchadnezzars son, Bel-shazzar,1 who was the nextking, forgot his fathers Godand praised the gods of gold and silver, of brass, of iron,of wood and of stone. At a great feast that Belshazzar gave to his courtiers,he saw the fingers of a mans hand write on the plasterof the wall these words: Mene, Mene, Tekel, Uphar-sin. The king was greatly troubled, for none of hiswise men could make known the meaning of thewords. His queen asked that Daniel be called to showthe interpretation. When Daniel was brought before the king he saidthat he would read the writing. Daniel told King Bel-shazzar that the meaning of the strange writing was, God hath finished thy kingdom. Thou art weighedin the balance and art found wanting. Thy kingdom isgiven to the Medes2 and Persians. 1 Belshazzar = bel-shazzar. a Medes = medes.
