August 9

YEA, if Thou wilt, Thou canst put up thy sword:
   But what if Thou shouldst sheathe it to the hilt
Within the heart that sues to Thee, O Lord?
   Yea, if Thou wilt.

   For if Thou wilt Thou canst purge out the guilt
Of all, of any, even the most abhorred:
   Thou canst pluck down, rebuild, build up the unbuilt.

Who wanders, canst Thou gather by love's cord?
   Who sinks, uplift from the under-sucking silt
To set him on Thy rock within Thy ward?
   Yea, if Thou wilt.
