‘…. Majestic in its own simplicity.
Inscribed above the portal, from afar
Conspicuous as the brightness of a star,
Legible only by the light they give,
Stand the soul-quickening words—believe, and live…’.
William Cowper (1731 – 1800) was born in Hertfordshire, England. His hymns and poems are well known all over the world.
