Christ, lovely in eyes not his

12 Apr 2022 | Moral Justice | 0 comments

I act therefore I am.

I say more: the just man justices;

Keeps grace, that keeps all his goings graces;

Acts in God’s eye 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.


Gerald Manley Hopkins (1844-89).
