Augustine’s Philosophy by B. B. Warfield

"THERE is a place for everything, 
In earth or sky or sea, b-b-warfield-portrait-6
Where it may find its proper use 
And of advantage be," 
Quoth Augustine, the saint. 

The mocker quick, with curling lip: — 
"Then there's a place for vice!" 
"Yea, fitly 'neath our trampling feet, 
May lie the cockatrice," 
Quoth Augustine, the saint. 

"Our very vices, great and foul, 
When in the earth they're trod, 
May haply lofty ladders build 
On which to climb to God," 
Quoth Augustine, the saint.
