THE GIFT, by            
First Line: Because I cannot speak the word
Last Line: Deaf ears accursed and blinded eyes!
Subject(s): God; Religion; Theology


Because I cannot speak the word
The greatest human lips have known;
Because my ear may not have heard
The mightiest of God's thunder-tone;

Because I could not probe the heart
To depths which God alone should see,
I have despised the humbler part
With which the Master trusted me.

O bastard gifts of unknown birth!
O soul that cannot read the skies!
A vaunt thy offerings, little worth!
Deaf ears accursed and blinded eyes!
