194 ~ Sing We of the Modern City


Sing we of the modern city, Scene alike of joy and stress; Sing we of its namelss people In their urban wilderness. Into endless rows of houses Life is set a millionfold, Life expressed in human beings Daily born and growing old.


In the city full of people, World of speed and hectic days, In the everchanging setting Of the latest trend and craze, Christ is present, and among us; In the crowd we see Him stand. In the bustle of the city Jesus Christ is every man.


God is not remote in heaven, But on earth to share our shame, Changing graph and mass and number Into persons with a name. Christ has shown, beyond statistics, Human life with glory crowned, By His timeless presence proving People matter, people count!
