FAITH, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: And is the great cause lost beyond recall?
Last Line: Forgive the anguish of the turning wheel.
Alternate Author Name(s): Cross, George, Mrs.
Subject(s): Faith; Belief; Creed

And is the Great Cause lost beyond recall?
Have all the hopes of ages come to nought?
Is Life no more with noble meaning fraught?
Is Life but Death, and Love its funeral pall?
Maybe. But still on bended knees I fall,
Filled with a faith no preacher ever taught.
Oh God -- my God, by no false prophet wrought,
I believe still, in despite of it all!

Let go the myths and creeds of groping men.
This clay knows nought -- the Potter understands.
I own that Power divine beyond my ken,
And still can leave me in His shaping hands.
But, O my God, that madest me to feel!
Forgive the anguish of the turning wheel.
