There is Something More than Patriotism

There is the love of God: but we forget
That there shall be no other god, and fail
The only institution to avail
A righteous Cause. We do not really yet
Believe that God is LOVE, if we can let
The idols of our reasoning assail
Humanity. All obligations pale
Before the understanding of our debt
To HIM. Vainly we struggle to enthrone
Democracy and Liberty: both these
Are folded in the hands of God, and we
Believing in the GOD of LOVE alone,
Can quietly accept them if we please,
And in the Day of Brotherhood be free.
