Not What But Whom

Source unknown

Not what, but whom, I do believeThat in my darkest hour of need Hath comforts that no mortal creed To mortal man may give.

Not what but whom,For Christ is more than all the creedsAnd his full life of gentle deeds Shall all the creeds outlive.

Not what I do believe but whom,Who walks beside me in the gloomWho shares the burden wearisome;Who all the dim way doth illume

And bids me look beyond the tombThe larger life to live.Not what I do believe but whom.

John Oxenham
