MAJESTY DIVINE.
Speechlessly, without beginning,
Sun that never rose ! Vast, adorable, and winning,
Day that hath no close ! Bliss from Thine own glory tasting, Everliving, everlasting,
Life that never grows !
Thine own Self for ever filling
With self-kindled flame, In Thyself Thou art distilling
Unctions without name ! Without worshipping of creatures. Without veiling of Thy features,
God always the same !
In Thy praise of Self untiring
Thy perfections shine; Self-sufficient, self-admiring,
Such life must be Thine ; Glorifying Self, yet blameless, With a sanctity all shameless,
It is so divine !
Mid Thine uncreated morning,
Like a trembling star I behold creation's dawning
Glimmering from far; Nothing giving, nothing taking, Nothing changing, nothing breaking,
Waiting at time's bar !
