Last eve I paused beside the blacksmith’s door,

And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime.

Then looking down I saw upon the floor,

Old hammers worn with beating years of time.

How many anvils have you used, said I,

To wear and batter all these hammers so?

Just one, said he, and then with twinkling eye,

The anvil wears the hammers out, you know.
Just so, thought I,

the anvil of God’s Word For ages skeptics’ blows have beat upon.

And though the noise of falling blows was heard,

The anvil is unharmed, the hammers – gone!
