The King's Message to the Empire

"And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year,
Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown'
And he replied:. Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand
Of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way'
So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night."

~ Written by Minnie Louise Haskins in 1908.
Quoted by King George VI in the first Christmas message to the nation after the beginning of World War 2.
