Because, dear Christ, your tender wounded arm (The Brier)
A very lovely text by a very lovely woman. Emily Pauline Johnson (1861-1913) was a prominent Canadian actress and woman of letters. Of mixed Mohawk and English ancestry, she was very proud of her Native American roots and often went by her Mohawk name of Tekahionwake. This text is set to one of S. S. Wesley's finest, but sadly now forgotten, tunes, "Reliance," from the European Psalmist.
