Lord, forgive me if my need
Sometimes shapes a human creed.
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
And so the Word had breath, and wrought With human hands the creed of creeds In loveliness of perfect deeds, More strong than all poetic thoughts; Which he may read that binds the sheaf, Or builds the house, or digs the grave, And those wild eyes that watch the waves In roarings round the coral reef.
