Saint Boniface

"As their gods were, so their laws were; 

Thor the strong could reave and steal,

So through many a peaceful inlet 

tore the Norse man’s eager keel;

But a new law came when Christ came, 

and not blameless, as before,

Can we, paying him our lip-tithes, 

give our lives And faith to Thor."  

James Russell Lowell (1819-1891)
