There Is a God
By Daniel Defoe (1661?–1731)
 
From ‘The Storm’

FOR in the darkest of the black abode
There’s not a devil but believes a God.
  Old Lucifer has sometimes tried
  To have himself deified;
But devils nor men the being of God denied,        5
Till men of late found out new ways to sin,
And turned the devil out to let the Atheist in.
But when the mighty element began,
  And storms the weighty truth explain,
Almighty power upon the whirlwind rode,        10
  And every blast proclaimed aloud
There is, there is, there is a God.
