Self-authenticating Wisdom

25 Feb 2022 | Bible | 0 comments

O take the book from off the shelf,
And con it meekly on thy knees;
Best panegyric on itself,
And self-avouched to teach and please.

Respect, adore it heart and mind.
How greatly sweet, how sweetly grand,
Who reads the most, is most refined,
And polished by the Master’s hand.

Christopher Smart (1722-1771).
