Henry W. Longfellow
wadsworth1.jpgHarvard Professor and
Best Loved American Poet


IHEARD the trailing garments
of the Night

Sweep through her marble halls!
I saw her sable skirts all fringed
with light
From the celestial walls!

I felt her presence, by its spell of might,
Stoop o’er me from above;
The calm, majestic presence of the Night,
As the one I love.

From the cool cisterns of the midnight air
My spirit drank repose;
The fountain of perpetual peace flows here,-From those deep cisterns flows.

O Holy Night! from thee I learn to bear
What man has borne before!
Thou layest thy finger on the lips of Care,
And they complain no more.

Peace! Peace! I breathe this prayer!
Descend with broad-winged flight,
The welcome, the thrice-prayed for, the
most fair,
The best-loved Night!

dr.shibley.jpgThe Weiner's congress "Born Again '97" held in the nation of India was one of the greatest ministry opportunities of my life! Bob, I truly believe your congress will go down as a landmark event toward the evangelization of India. The entire Body of Christ is indebted to you and Rose for your faith and vision that made this conference a reality."
