God Is

“He is a path, if any be misled;
He is a robe, if any naked be;
If any chance to hunger, He is bread;
If any be a bondman, He is free;
If any be but weak, how strong is He!
To dead men life He is, to sick men health,
To blind men sight, and to the needy wealth;
A pleasure without loss, a treasure without stealth.”

—Giles Fletcher the Younger, excerpt from “Christ’s Victory and Triumph” (1610)
