PRAYER AND ASPIRATION
491
2 Calmer yet and calmer,
In the hour of pain, Surer yet and surer
Peace at last to gain; Suffering still and doing,
To His will resigned, And to God subduing
Heart and will and mind.
3 Higher yet and higher
Out of clouds and night, Nearer yet and nearer
Rising to the light; Light serene and holy,
Where my soul may rest, Purified and lowly,
Sanctified and blest;
4 Swifter yet and swifter
Ever onward run, Firmer yet and firmer
Step as I go on: Oft these earnest longings
Swell within my breast, Yet their inner meaning
Ne'er can be expressed.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethh
