FABER'S HYMNS.
With Him, their mutual Jubilee, that deepest depth of
love, Life-giving Life of two-fold source, the many-gifted
Dove! O Bountiful! O Beautiful! can Power or Wisdom add Fresh features to a life, so munificent and glad? Can even uncreated Love, ye angels! give a hue Which can ever make the Unchanging and Unchange­able look new?
The Mercy of the Merciful is equal to Their Might, As wondrous as Their love, and as Their Wisdom
bright! As They, who out of nothing called creation at the
first, In everlasting purposes Their own design had
nursed,— As They, who in Their solitude, Three Persons, once
abode, Vouchsafed of Their abundance to become creation's
God, — What They owed not to Themselves They stooped to
owe to man, And pledged Their glory to him, in an unimaginable
plan.
See! deep within the glowing depth of that Eternal
Light, What change hath come, what vision new transports
angelic sight?
