As a Christian, miracle has been one word that has constantly resounded in my ears since infancy. First, the miracles by Jesus, and other miracles performed by his disciples as well as other early church fathers and ministers, were taught in Sunday schools.
Growing up, I came to realise how obsessed some of us are with miracles. It must be an interesting thing.

The Sun will rise, no more to set

I hear the voice of the world in cries;
In tears that waste the eyes,
By faith, so vainly fed;
With a tyrant so cruel to put earth to death.
“Ah, helpless world!” said I;
“Ah, wretched world!” twice did I sadly cry;
“Ah, helpless world!” the north and south reply.
