thou who hast thyself Endured this fleshhood, knowing how as a soaked And sucking vesture it can drag us down And choke us in the melancholy Deep, Sustain me, that with thee I walk these waves, Resisting!--breathe me upward, thou in me Aspiring who art the way, the truth, the life,-- That no truth henceforth seem indifferent, No way to truth laborious, and no life, Not even this life I live, intolerable!
