XXXIII. Resignation
From ‘Discipline’
By George Herbert (1593–1633)
 
THROW away thy rod,
Throw away thy wrath;
      O my God,
Take the gentle path!
 
For my heart’s desire        5
Unto thine is bent;
      I aspire
To a full consent….
 
Throw away thy rod;
Though man frailties hath,        10
      Thou art God;
Throw away thy wrath!
