Farewell, farewell! but this I tell To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!

Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.

 

–Samuel Coleridge Taylor, excerpt “Rime of the Ancient Mariner”
