Time's Altars [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 7 September 1939

Time's Altars

by John Oxenham

B.C. 1914 Red on the altars lay the sacrifices, Red ran the channels in those olden days, When, from the .'adgment of his ill devices, Man sought redemption and the means of grace. A.D. 33 Christ by the Cross redeemed a whole world's sinning, . Counted as, naught the anguish and the pain,. - Gave Himself wholly for the hope of winning Life from the burden of its self-wrought chain. A.D. 1914-1918 Now, once again, the sacrifice is rendered; Now, the. altars run.with blood; Will the new life, of this vast woe engendered; Root out the cvil —bring the greater good? A.D. 19— If not—if still the things of earth enthral us, If this sore lesson we still fail to learn— Then, of a surety, shall still worse befall us, ••'-. Till unto Him with contrite hearts we turn. Can we not read the meaning and the warning? Are we so dull that blows alone will save? Must Life for ever be a House of Mourning? Can we find God but in an open grave? (From "High Altars,...
