Faith - How Guarded

Yes, thou dost well, to arm thy tender mind
With all that learning, and stern common sense
Living hath spoke, or dying left behind;
To blank the forwardness of pert pretence

With long experience of a mighty mind,
That. daring to explore the truth immense,
Subsided in a faithful reverence
Of the best Catholic hope of human kind.

Yes, thou dost well to build a fence about
Thine inward faith, and mount a stalwart guard
Of answers, to oppose invading doubt.

All aids are needful, for the strife is hard;
But still be sure the truth within to cherish, -
Truths long besieged too oft of hunger perish.
