24                       FABER'S HYMNS.
There 's not a craving in the mind Thou dost not meet and still;
There 's not a wish the heart can have Which Thou dost not fulfil.
I see Thee in the eternal years
In glory all alone, Ere round Thine uncreated fires
Created light had shone.
I see Thee walk in Eden's shade, I see Thee all through time;
Thy patience and compassion seem New attributes sublime.
I see Thee when the doom is o'er, And outworn time is done,
Still, still incomprehensible, O God ! yet not alone.
Angelic spirits, countless souls, Of Thee have drunk their fill,
And to eternity will drink Thy joy and glory still.
Mary, herself a sea of grace,
Hath all been drawn from Thine;
And Thou couldst fill a thousand more From out those depths divine.
