William Blake

Here you will find the Poem Divine Image, The of poet William Blake

Divine Image, The

To Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love 
 All pray in their distress;
 And to these virtues of delight
 Return their thankfulness.

 For Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
 Is God, our father dear,
 And Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
 Is Man, his child and care.

 For Mercy has a human heart,
 Pity a human face,
 And Love, the human form divine,
 And Peace, the human dress.

 Then every man, of every clime,
 That prays in his distress,
 Prays to the human form divine,
 Love, Mercy, Pity, Peace.

 And all must love the human form,
 In heathen, Turk, or Jew;
 Where Mercy, Love, and Pity dwell
 There God is dwelling too.
