Blind Unbelief; Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud; Under the fludgeonings of chance, My head is bloody, but unbowed. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishment the scroll, I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul-WM.E.Henly.; Seeing faith; Make me a captive, Lord, And then shall I be free. Force me to render up my sword, And I shall a conqueror be. I sink in life's alarms when by myself I stand. Imprison me within Thine arms, And strong shall be my hand. My will is not mine own. Till Thou hast made it Thine; If it would reach a monarch's throne, It must its crown resign. It only stands unbent amid the clashing strife when on Thy bosom it has lea(sic) And found in Thee its life.-Geo.Matheson.
