Beneath his Banner
"Thine are we, David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse." -- 1 Chron. xii.18.

Mechthild of Hellfde, 1277.

tr., Emma Frances Bevan, 1899

'Twixt God and thee but love shall be;

'Twixt earth and thee distrust and fear,

'Twixt sin and thee shall be hate and war;

And hope shall be 'twixt Heaven and thee

Till night is o'er.
