But an Atom

'Eternal incomprehensible God,
 I believe, and confess, and adore Thee,
 as being infinitely more wonderful, resourceful,
and immense than this universe which I see.
I look into the depths of space
in which the stars are scattered about...   

But all, all that is in these worlds, high and low,
 are but an atom compared with the 
grandeur, the height and depth, the glory
 on which Thy saints are gazing
            in their contemplation of Thee.'          
John Henry Newman
