Lazy god?
I do not know much about gods; but I think that the river
Is a strong brown god—sullen, untamed and intractable,
Patient to some degree, at first recognised as a frontier;
T.S. Eliot. The Dry Salvages

Don't know much about theology
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about a science book
Don't know much about the French I took

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be

Oh, Sam. You shouldn't have.

Say, weren't you born right by the strong brown god? In a little tent? And just like that strong brown, patient god, haven't you been running ever since?

That may be so, but I'm telling you: a change is gonna come.

Or, as T.S. Eliot once said:

I said to my soul, be still, and let the dark come upon you
Which shall be the darkness of God. As, in a theatre, when it's been a long time a-comin', but I know, that
the lights are extinguished, 'cause a change is gonna come, oh yes it will.
With a hollow rumble of wings, with a movement of darkness on darkness,
And we know that the hills and the trees, the distant panorama
And the bold imposing facade are all being rolled away

Tusind Aars Skille. Saa slog de Bro.
Saa drog de over i Vogne og Sko,
Tiggere, Trækkere, Kræmmere, Friere,
alle de tusinde Somres Forbiere,
stejlende Plage som skejtende Ko,
alt drog nu over den dumrende Bro.
