In true Genealogical fashion, here are my references :
Less Than the Dust
Less than the dust, beneath thy Chariot wheel,
Less than the rust, that never stained thy Sword,
Less than the trust thou hast in me, O Lord,
Even less than these!
Less than the weed, that grows beside thy door,
Less than the speed of hours spent far from thee,
Less than the need thou hast in life of me.
Even less am I.
Since I, O Lord, am nothing unto thee,
See here thy Sword, I make it keen and bright,
Love's last reward, Death, comes to me to-night,
by Laurence Hope
In the English Bible no less : the verse about the Jot and Tittle is Matthew
5:17-18 where Jesus states “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or
the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto
you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass
from the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Tittle refers to the small stroke over
the letter F in old English, as Tilde; and Jot is the smallest letter, as in
the Greek iota.)
