Hostler's Fate

Though mentioned not in scripture, this hostler of no name, remains a
shadowed figure, the night our Savior came. His inn that night was crowded,
as was his stable-shed, and though he didn't know it, 'twas God's Son's
chosen bed. Thus, by that long-planned action, which led to Calvary, God
reconciled Mankind through Love, the gateway Heavenly. And that forgotten
hostler, of whom there's no renown, will surely be well-known in Heav'n,
wearing a star-filled crown!

This was used as a Christmas Carol at Northfield Seminary (now
Northfield-Mount Herman) when my mother was there, she graduated about
1940. SHe loves it.

I believe this is a poem admonishes generosity, with the subtle
understanding of the Saviour's statement - "Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." No
matter how humble our situation, we must open our hearts and hospitality to
all friends and strangers, rich and poor, alike. What a fine sentiment of
loving our neighbours. This poem is dedicated to Richardson Wright, editor
of House & Garden for many years and author of several gardening books
during the first half of the 20th Century. Mr. Wright's graciousness,
generosity, and hospitality make him quite worthy of this poem.
