Piety, Wonder, Theology of NatureTT

    The first stanza enquires: 'Will God indeed to earth descend, / In temples made with hands to dwell? / Lo! round, above, the heavens extend; / Can science their dimensions tell? / Their viewless bounds we seek in vain; / Yet, can the heavens our God contain?'. Subsequent stanzas contrast the infinitude of God with the doctrine of incarnation.
