Thou art a sea without a shore;
Awful, immense Thou art; A sea which can contract itself
Within my narrow heart.
And yet Thou art a haven, too,
Out on the shoreless sea, A harbor that can hold full well
Shipwrecked Humanity.
Thou art an unborn Breath outbreathed
On angels and on men, Subduing all things to Thyself,
We know not how or when.
Thou art a God of fire, that doth
Create while He consumes! A God of light, whose rays on earth
Darken where He illumes !
All things ! dread Spirit! to Thy praise Thy Presence doth transmute ;
Evil itself Thy glory bears, Its one abiding fruit!
O Light! O Love ! O very God !
I dare no longer gaze Upon Thy wondrous attributes,
And their mysterious ways.
