Faith

By William Henry Venable

The spreading circle of the known
That Science strives to bound with laws
Is but a glowing sparkle thrown
From God, the radiant central cause.

His mystery is vaster far
Than knowledge is or e’er can be;
The wheel of Evolution’s car
Rolls onward through eternity.

A stilly voice forever sounds
The lapses of our doubt between;
“Seek not to give Religion bounds,
Nor limit Faith by forces seen,”
