Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
475. Epigram on a Country Laird (Cardoness)
 
 
not quite so wise as Solomon.
 
 
BLESS Jesus Christ, O Cardonessp,
  With grateful, lifted eyes,
Who taught that not the soul alone,
  But body too shall rise;
For had He said “the soul alone        5
  From death I will deliver,”
Alas, alas! O Cardoness,
  Then hadst thou lain for ever.
