Crucified shadow, cast on the wall -
Come behold this, work of our hands!
Stand below, hear His cry to all lands:
'I thirst still - for you and for all.'
In saried ranks before Christ kneel
Then rise, go in haste, by vows set apart -
Silence of heaven, silence of heart -
Handmaids of God, marked with His seal.
In grace and truth, not myth or story
The Word took flesh: we see His glory.
From my two week Come-and-See at the Missionaries of Charity.
