"Statue of Liberty said, 'Come'"
Open Your Golden Gates
For Mercy has a human heart
Pity, a human face:
And Love, the human form divine,
And Peace, the human dress.
Then every man of every clime,
That prays in his distress,
Prays to the human form divine
Love Mercy Pity Peace.
WILLIAM BLAKE, “The Divine Image,” stanzas 3 and 4, lines 9–16, The Complete Poetry and Prose of William Blake, ed. David V. Erdman, pp. 12–13 (1982). First published in 1789.
