Dabar [theme]

He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou find refuge: His truth is a shield and buckler
Psalms 91:4

Be it ours,when we cannot see the face of God, to trust under the shadow of His wings. C.H. Spugeon

Imagination


Imagination - here the power so called
Through sad incompetence of human speech,
That awful Power rose from mind's abyss
Like an unfathered vapor that enwraps,
At once, some lonely traveler: I was lost;
Halted without an effort to breakthrough;
But to my conscious soul I now can say --
"I recognize your glory": in such strength
Of usurpation, when the light of sense
Goes out, but with a flash that has revealed
The invisible world, does greatness make abode;
There harbours; whether we be young or old,
Our destiny, our being's heart and home,
Is with infinitude, and only there:
With hope it is, hope that can never die,
Effort, and expectation, and desire,
And something evermore about to be.
Under such banners militant, the soul
Seeks for no trophies, struggles for no spoils
That may attest her prowess, blest in thoughts
That are their own perfection and reward.

The Prelude by
William Wordsworth
