The sailing of the ark
that are bound by vows, and
with pomp of holy sacrifice and rites,
to teach belief in good and still devotion,
to preach of Heaven’s wonders and delights:
yet when each of us in his own heart looks
he finds the God there far unlike his books.
Fulke Greville, ‘Chorus of Priests’
heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
