Who knows his manhood's strength, Yet still his

Who knows his manhood's strength,
Yet still his female feebleness maintains;

As to one channel flow the many drains,

All come to him, yea, all beneath the sky

Thus he the constant excellence retains;

The simple child again, free from all stains

Who knows how white attracts,

Yet always keeps himself within black's shade,

The pattern of humility displayed,

Displayed in view of all beneath the sky;

He in the unchanging excellence arrayed,

Endless return to man's first state has made

Who knows how glory shines,

Yet loves disgrace, nor e'er for it is pale;

Behold his presence in a spacious vale,

To which men come from all beneath the sky

The unchanging excellence completes its tale;

The simple infant man in him we hail

Who is content Needs fear no shame Who shall overcome this earth, and the world of Yama facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
