Arthur Quiller-Couch, comp.  The Oxford Book of Victorian Verse.  1922.
 
Faith
By Frances Anne Kemble (1809–1893)
 
BETTER trust all, and be deceived,
  And weep that trust and that deceiving,
Than doubt one heart that, if believed,
  Had bless’d one’s life with true believing.
 
O, in this mocking world too fast        5
  The doubting fiend o’ertakes our youth!
Better be cheated to the last
  Than lose the blessèd hope of truth.
