  • God attributes to place
    No sanctity, if none be thither brought
    By men who there frequent.
  • But all his mind is bent to holiness,
    To number Ave-Maries on his beads;
    His champions are the prophets and apostles,
    His weapons holy saw of sacred writ,
    His study is his tilt-yard, and his loves
    Are brazen images of canonized saints.
  • He who the sword of heaven will bear
    Should be as holy as severe;
    Pattern in himself to know,
    Grace to stand, and virtue go;
    More or less to others paying
    Than by self-offences weighing.
    Shame to him whose cruel striking
    Kills for faults of his own liking!
  • Holiness is the architectural plan upon which God buildeth up His living temple.
