From "The Dream of Gerontius"

From "The Dream of Gerontius"   

“O wisest love! That flesh and blood
Which did in Adam fail,
Should strive afresh against the foe,
Should strive and should prevail.“
„And that a higher gift than grace
Should flesh and blood refine,
God’s presence and His very Self,
And Essence all-divine.”   (VV 360)

                   - John Henry Newman
