This is Page 49 of the bound volume of The Deer’s Cry at the Manx Museum.

“Christ before me” with Christ again shown by the large “X” cross with a “T” and the illuminated lettering being borne along in the wake of a ship’s propeller. Around the intersection of the cross is a heart showing God’s love at the centre of everything.

The words in the above paragraph are just my personal and subjective thoughts. Knox must have had so many ideas and thoughts behind this page and the other pages which, perhaps, we will never know
The Archibald Knox Forum would like to hear your thoughts, ideas and comments on any of the pages from The Deer’s Cry.
