Takoma Park Station, Washington, D. C., June.76, 1907

The heavens opened, and a voice was heard;


And they who might have caught the precious
word .
Stood by with hearts unheeding and unstirred.

The throngs were gathering to praise and pray,


And some were seeking Jesus by the way ;
But no one knew the Father's voice that day.

Some said a crash of thunder rent the air;


Some, that an unseen angel came to bear
A message to the Master waiting there.

If I had tarried with that multitude,


And heard the voice which they misunderstood,
Should I have known? I wonder if I should!

Or like the throng should I have been misled,


And, heedless, let the message pass instead,
Misunderstood and misinterpreted?

May I so live that in this latter day


I may not miss the voice along the way,
But hearing, understand it, and obey.
— Edith Virginia Bradt.
