Century follows century—There it stands. 
Empires rise and fall and are forgotten—There it stands.
Dynasty succeeds dynasty—There it stands.
Kings are crowned and uncrowned—There it stands.

Emperors decree its extermination—There it stands.
Atheists rail against it—There it stands.
Agnostics smile cynically—There it stands.
Profane prayerless punsters caricature it—There it stands.

Unbelief abandons it—There it stands.
Higher critics deny its claim to inspiration—There it stands.
The flames are kindled about it—There it stands.
Time gnaws at it—There it stands.

Infidels predict its abandonment—There it stands.
Modernism tries to explain it away—There it stands. 
—A. Z. Conrad
