On the Sepulchre of ChristTommaso Campanella (15681639)
Think how God’s deathless Mind, that men might be
Robed in celestial immortality
(O Love divine!) in flesh was raimented:
How He was killed and buried; from the dead
How He arose to life with victory,
And reigned in heaven, how all of us shall be
Glorious like Him whose hearts to His are wed:
How they who die for love of reason, give
Hypocrites, tyrants, sophists, all who sell
Their neighbour’s ill for holiness—to hell:
How the dead saint condemns the bad who live;
How all he does becomes a law for men
How he at last to judge shall come again.
