Selections from ‘Jerusalem’
[The Divine Image]
 
(Jerusalem, f. 96, ll. 23–8.)

JESUS said: ‘Wouldest thou love one who never died
For thee, or ever die for one who had not died for thee?
And if God dieth not for Man, and giveth not Himself
Eternally for Man, Man could not exist; for Man is Love,
As God is Love: every kindness to another is a little Death        5
In the Divine Image; nor can Man exist but by Brotherhood.’
