The Safe Place
There is no little space where God is not,
No crevice, cranny, fissure, scissure, slot,
No corner overlooked, no hidden gate
Through which His counterfeits can infiltrate.
No enemies are lurking in the shades,
No evil powers to storm the barricades:
Fear for no breach in God’s encircling wall,
His allness never can be less than all.
Let us be sure of this, that come what may,
Out of God’s universe we cannot stray;
No lonely space is here, or danger spot
There is no little space where God is not.
