And all the brothers which are with me, to the churches of Galatia:
A band of faithful men
Met for God's worship in some humble room,
Or screened from foes by midnight's starlit gloom,
On hillside or lone glen
To hear the counsels of God's Holy Word
Pledged to each other and their common Lord.
These, few as they may be,
Compose a Church, such as in pristine ages
Defied the tyrant's steel, the bigot's rage.
For, when but two or three,
Whate'er the place, in faith's communion meet,
There, with Christ present, is a Church complete.
