Página 93 - O, THOU ETERNAL ONE ! whose presence bright All space doth occupy, all motion guide ; Unchanged through time's all-devastating flight ; Thou only God ! There is no God beside ! Being above all beings ! Mighty One Whom none can comprehend and none explore...
Página 95 - A million torches lighted by thy hand Wander unwearied through the blue abyss: They own thy power, accomplish thy command, All gay with life, all eloquent with bliss. What shall we call them? Piles of crystal light, A glorious company of golden streams, Lamps of celestial ether burning bright, Suns lighting systems with their joyous beams?
Página 94 - In its sublime research, philosophy May measure out the ocean deep— may count The sands or the sun's rays— but God ! for thee There is no weight nor measure ; none can mount Up to thy mysteries. Reason's brightest spark, Though kindled by thy light, in vain would try To trace thy counsel infinite and dark ; And thought is lost ere thought can soar so high, Even like past moments in eternity.
Página 95 - But the effluence of Thy light divine, Pervading worlds, hath reached my bosom too ; Yes, in my spirit doth Thy spirit shine, As shines the sunbeam in a drop of dew.
Página 96 - Creator yes ! Thy wisdom and Thy word Created me ! Thou source of life and good ! Thou spirit of my spirit, and my Lord...
Página 95 - Yes! as a drop of water in the sea, All this magnificence in Thee is lost : — What are ten thousand worlds compared to Thee?
Página 94 - Thy chains the unmeasured universe surround, Upheld by thee, by thee inspired with breath ; Thou the beginning with the end hast bound, And beautifully mingled life and death. As sparks mount upward from the fiery blaze, So suns are born, so worlds spring forth, from thee, And as the spangles in the sunny rays Shine round the silver snow, the pageantry Of heaven's bright army glitters in thy praise.
Página 94 - Upheld by Thee, by Thee inspired with breath ! Thou the beginning with the end hast bound, And beautifully mingled life and death ! As sparks mount upwards from the fiery blaze, So suns are born, so worlds spring forth from Thee; And as the spangles in the sunny rays Shine round the silver snow, the pageantry Of heaven's bright army glitters in Thy praise*.
Página 95 - God! and surely Thou must be! Thou art! — directing, guiding all — Thou art! Direct my understanding then to Thee; Control my spirit, guide my wandering heart; Though but an atom midst immensity, Still I am something fashioned by Thy hand! I hold a middle rank 'twixt heaven and earth — On the last verge of mortal being stand, Close to the realms where angels have their birth, Just on the boundaries of the spirit land!
Página 95 - twixt heaven and earth — On the last verge of mortal being stand, Close to the realms where angels have their birth, Just on the boundaries of the spirit-land! The chain of being is complete in me — In me is matter's last gradation lost, And the next step is spirit — -Deity!
