The just man does ‘what in God’s eyes he is’

12 Apr 2022 | Moral Justice | 0 comments

I say more: the just man justices;

Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces;

Acts in God’s eyes what in God’s eye he is-

Christ. For Christ plays in ten thousand places,

Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his

To the Father through the features of men’s faces.


Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-89), As Kingfishers Catch Fire.
