The God of Love, ah Benedicite,
How mighty and how gret a Lord is He!
CHAUCER.

No God is left us to adore,
Or sin to lay the lash on;
Agnostics flourish more and more,
And worship's out of fashion.
This is the sort of thing you hear
Your neighbours often saying;
And some of them are glad, I fear,
To shirk the task of praying.

But poor and rich, and great and small,
And clever folks and stupid,
Agnostics, too, indeed, and all,
Still own the sway of Cupid.
And so whatever people say—
The stupid folks or clever—
There yet is left a God to-day
Omnipotent as ever.
