Basically:

"We don't dare believe that the substance of this vast world is reserved for death and ruin, (even) while we see such great masses of land ready to collapse!"

We don't dare to believe because we must have hope in order to carry on. Otherwise there is no point. Yet the knowledge of it pervades our existence and somehow drives us forward to be better (or worse) things.
