A Spirit Pass'd Before Me (from Job)

A SPIRIT pass'd before me: I beheld
The face of immortality unveil'd --
Deep sleep came down on every eye save mine --
And there it stood, -- all formless -- but divine;
Along my bones the creeping flesh did quake;
And as my damp hair stiffen'd, thus it spake:
 
'Is man more just that God? Is man more pure
Than he who deems even Seraphs insecure?
Creatures of clay -- vain dwellers in the dust!
The moth survives you, and are ye more just?
Things of day! you wither ere the night,
Heedless and blind to Wisdom's wasted light!'
 
Thanks!
