      All efforts to destroy are vain -

      Poems About God's Word: THE BOOK OF GOD

      Thy thoughts are here, my God,
      Expressed in words divine,
      The utterance of heavenly lips
      In every sacred line.

      Across the ages they
      Have reached us from afar,
      Than the bright gold more golden they,
      Purer than purest star.

      More durable they stand
      Than the eternal hills;
      Far sweeter and more musical
      Than music of earth's rills.

      Fairer in their fair hues
      Than the fresh flowers of earth,
      More fragrant than the fragrant climes
      Where odors have their birth.

      Each word of thine a gem
      From the celestial mines,
      A sunbeam from that holy heaven
      Where holy sunlight shines.

      Thine, thine, this book, though given
      In man's poor human speech,
      Telling of things unseen, unheard,
      Beyond all human reach.

      No strength it craves or needs
      From this world's wisdom vain;
      No filling up from human wells,
      Or sublunary rain.

      No light from sons of time,
      Nor brilliance from its gold;
      It sparkles with its own glad light,
      As in the ages old.

      A thousand hammers keen,
      With fiery force and strain,
      Brought down on it in rage and hate,
      Have struck this gem in vain.

      Against this sea-swept rock
      Ten thousand storms their will
      Of foam and rage have wildly spent;
      It lifts its calm face still.

      It standeth and will stand,
      Without or change or age,
      The word of majesty and light,
      The church's heritage.

      HER CREED

      She stood before a chosen few,
      With modest air and eyes of blue;
      A gentle creature, in whose face
      Were mingled tenderness and grace.

      "You wish to join our fold," they said:
      "Do you believe in all that's read
      From ritual and written creed,
      Essential to our human need?"

      A troubled look was in her eyes;
      She answered, as in vague surprise.
      As though the sense to her were dim,
      "I only strive to follow Him."

      They knew her life; how, oft she stood,
      Sweet in her guileless maidenhood,
      By dying bed, in hovel lone,
      Whose sorrow she had made her own.

      Oft had her voice in prayer been heard,
      Sweet as the voice of singing bird;
      Her hand been open in distress;
      Her joy to brighten and to bless.

      Yet still she answered, when they sought
      To know her inmost earnest thought,
      With look as of the seraphim,
      "I only strive to follow Him."

      Creeds change as ages come and go;
      We see by faith, but little know:
      Perchance the sense was not so dim
      To her who "strove to follow Him."

        "Upon Thy Word I rest
            Each pilgrim day.
          This golden staff is best
            For all the way.
          What Jesus Christ hath spoken,
            Cannot be broken!

          "Upon Thy Word I rest;
            So strong, so sure,
          So full of comfort blest,
            So sweet, so pure:
          The charter of salvation:
            Faith's broad foundation.

          "Upon Thy Word I stand:
            That cannot die.
          Christ seals it in my hand.
            He cannot lie.
          Thy Word that faileth never:
            Abiding ever."
