Not what, but WHOM, I do believe,
That, in my darkest hour of need,
Hath comfort that no mortal creed

And His full life of gentle deeds
Shall all the creeds outlive.
Not what I do believe, but WHOM!

WHO shares the burden wearisome?
WHO all the dim way doth illume,
And bids me look beyond the tomb
The larger life to live?--
Not what I do believe,
