CCLXIII: My Worthiness is all my Doubt

What is wrong with me that I let post 256 pass without comment, they'll take away my Computer Science PhD. I feel I should transition to writing my post numbers in binary in penance, but if I sit down that will probably pass...

My Worthiness is all my Doubt—
His Merit—all my fear—
Contrasting which, my quality
Do lowlier—appear—

Lest I should insufficient prove
For His beloved Need—
The Chiefest Apprehension
Upon my thronging Mind—

'Tis true—that Deity to stoop
Inherently incline—
For nothing higher than Itself
Itself can rest upon—

So I—the undivine abode
Of His Elect Content—
Conform my Soul—as 'twere a Church,
Unto Her Sacrament—

-Emily Dickinson
