His bounty shall be spread abroad so widely, As not to let the tongues e'en of his foes Be idle in its praise.

And thou shalt bear this written in thy soul Of him, but tell it not;" and things he told Incredible to those who witness them; Then added: "So interpret thou, my son, What hath been told thee.show more
