Blustering God

 i

Blustering God,
Stamping across the sky
With loud swagger,
I fear You not.
No, though from Your highest heaven You plunge Your spear at my heart, I fear You not.
No, not if the blow Is as the lightning blasting a tree, I fear You not, puffing braggart.
ii If Thou canst see into my heart That I fear Thee not, Thou wilt see why I fear Thee not, And why it is right.
So threaten not, Thou, with Thy bloody spears, Else Thy sublime ears shall hear curses.
iii Withal, there is One whom I fear: I fear to see grief upon that face.
Perchance, friend, He is not your God; If so, spit upon Him.
By it you will do no profanity.
But I -- Ah, sooner would I die Than see tears in those eyes of my soul.
