To Mercy, Pity, Peace and Love

To Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
all pray in their distress,
and to these virtues of delight
return their thankfulness.

For Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
is God our Father dear;
and Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
is Man, his Child and care.

For Mercy has a human heart,
Pity, a human face,
and Love, the human form divine.
and Peace, the human dress.

Then every man, of every clime,
that prays in his distress,
prays to the human form divine,
Love, Mercy, Pity, Peace.

And all must love the human form,
in heathen, Turk or Jew;
where Mercy, Love, and Pity dwell,
there God is dwelling too.
