The Temper
By George Herbert (1593–1633)
HOW should I praise Thee, Lord! how should my rhymes
  Gladly engrave thy love in steel,
  If what my soul doth feel sometimes,
    My soul might ever feel!
Whether I fly with angels, fall with dust,        5
  Thy hands made both, and I am there:
  Thy power and love, my love and trust
    Make one place everywhere.
