Footnote to All Prayers

prayer

He to whom I bow only knows to whom I bow

When I attempt the ineffable Name, murmuring “Thou”…

And all men are idolators, crying unheard

To a deaf idol, if Thou take them at their word.

Take not, oh Lord, our literal sense.

Lord, into Thy great,

Unbroken speech our limping metaphor translate.

–CS Lewis
