RECESSIONAL by Rudyard Kipling Editor's Note- We have been requested a great many times of late to republish Mr. Kipling's poem "Recessional," and we gladly reproduce it herewith in compliance with these requests. [left column] GOD of our fathers, known of oldLord of our far-flung battle-lineBeneath Whose awful Hand we hold Dominion over palm and pine Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget- lest we forget!

The tumult and the shouting dies- The captains and the kings depart- Still stands Thine ancient Sacrifice, An humble and a coontrite heart. Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget- lest we forget!

[right column] Far-called our navies melt away- On dune and headland sinks the fire- Lo, all our pomp of yesterday Is one with Nineveh and Tyre! Judge of the Nations, spare us yet, Lest we forget- lest we forget!

If, drunk with sight of power, we loose Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe- Such boasting as the Gentiles use Or lesser breeds without the Law- Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget, lest we forget!

[bottom column] For heathen heart that puts her trust In reeking tube and iron shard- all valiant dust that builds on dust, And guardig calls not Thee to guard- For frantic boast and foolish word, Thy Mercy on Thy People, Lord! Amen.

[left column] medium foor most of the stories and poems published by Mr.Kipling during its lifetime. The same is true of the writings of Anthony H [illegible] and Robert Louis Stevenson. And these are only examples of a policy which must be by now perfectly familiar to our friends. It is more interesting, however, to look ahead and talk about what we are going to do. We give herewith a brief description of some of the articles and stories which we hope will not only retain the support of our present friends, but bring us new allies. A SERIAL BY RUDYARD
