RESIGNATION, by            
First Line: If I knew that death's portal held for me
Last Line: When all great things shall be at my command.
Subject(s): God; Life


IF I knew that death's portal held for me
Eyes universal, which should pierce the scheme
Of infinite life, lay bare the mammoth dream
Which baffles mortal sense; if I might see
The countless worlds unwrapped of mystery,
Behold time's self, past, present, and the gleam
Of God's great future; if with His supreme
Control I might grasp all eternity:
Ah! even then I should not yearn to go
Into the confines of that wondrous land,
Believing that my lot of human woe
Were portioned here to help me understand
What in due time is meant for me to know,
When all great things shall be at my command.
