THE wise men ask, "What language did Christ speak?"
They cavil, argue, search, and little prove.
O sages, leave your Syriac and your Greek!
Each heart contains the knowledge that you seek:
Christ spoke the universal language--Love.
By Ella Wheeler Wilcox
The Century; a popular quarterly Volume 54, Issue 4 (Aug 1897): 526.
