My Worthiness is all my Doubt

My Worthiness is all my Doubt

My Worthiness is all my Doubt
His Merit all my fear
Contrasting which, my quality
Do lowlier appear

Lest I should insufficient prove
For His beloved Need
The Chiefest Apprehension
Upon my thronging Mind

‘Tis true that Deity to stoop
Inherently incline
For nothing higher than Itself
Itself can rest upon

So I the undivine abode
Of His Elect Content
Conform my Soul as ’twere a Church,
Unto Her Sacrament



Poem My Worthiness is all my Doubt - Emily Dickinson
