Feels at each thread, and lives along the line.

All chance direction, which thou canst not see;

All partial evil, universal good;
And spite of pride, in erring reason's spite,
One truth is clear, Whatever is is right.

the hour of his death never lose sight of it.

jusqu'a la mort ne voir qu'elle.]

The light Militia of the lower sky.
