none other lamb

None other lamb, none other name
No hope in all the earth or sea
No hiding place from guilt and shame
None but thee.

My faith burns low, my hope burns low
Yet my desire cries out in me
The thunder of its want and woe
Cries to thee.

Lord, thou art life, though I be dead
Love's fire thou art when cold I be
No place have I to lay my head
None but thee.

None other lamb, none other name
None other hope in heaven or earth or sea
None other hiding place from guilt or shame
None beside thee.

-Christina Rossetti, "None Other Lamb"
