I CANNOT think nor reason,
I only know he came
With hands and feet of healing
And wild heart all aflame.
 
With eyes that dimmed and softened        5
At all the things he saw,
And in his pillared singing
I read the marching Law.
 
I only know he loves me,
Enfolds and understands—        10
And oh, his heart that holds me,
And oh, his certain hands!
