|Veneration of Images|
Thou man, first-comer, whose wide arms entreat, |
Gather, clasp, welcome, bind,
Lack, or remember; whose warm pulses beat
With love of thine own kind:
Unlifted for a blessing on yon sea, |
Unshrined on this highway,
O flesh, O grief, thou too shalt have our knee,
Thou rood of every day!
