OUR RED LETTER DAYS

My Alpine staff recalls each shining height,
Each pass of grandeur with rejoicing gained,
Carved with a lengthening record, self-explained.
Of mountain-memories sublime and bright.
No valley-life but hath some mountain days,
Bright summits in the retrospective view,
And toil-won passes to glad prospects new,
Fair sunlit memories of joy and praise.
Here then inscribe them,–each “red letter day!”
Forget not all the sunshine of the way
By which the Lord hath led thee; answered prayers
And joys unasked, strange blessings, lifted cares,
Grand promise-echoes!  Thus each page shall be
A record of God’s love and faithfulness to thee!

Frances Ridley Havergal from RED LETTER DAYS
