The Divine Image
"To Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
All pray in their distress;
And to these virtues of delight
Return their thankfulness....
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.
....Where Mercy, Love & Pity dwell
There God is dwelling too."
from William Blakes poem The Divine Image
