Prayer Book Revision

Assay the words that you have written,
Examine those which now are stricken,
and ask if these you label "old"
Are truthfully distasteful, cold.
I think not.
Are those you would proclaim most clear
More apt to catch the faithfuls ear
And tune his body to the role
Of kinship with a contrite soul?
