DPF / Herrick

For honoring whatever you believe in, from a poet who believes in God, for Thanksgiving, from poetryfoundation.org.

from A Thanksgiving to God, for his House / by Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

Lord, Thou hast given me a cell
         Wherein to dwell,
A little house, whose humble roof
         Is weather-proof:
Under the spars of which I lie
         Both soft, and dry;
Where Thou my chamber for to ward
         Hast set a guard
Of harmless thoughts, to watch and keep
         Me, while I sleep.
