Order and multitude and light
In beauteous showers outstreamed;
And realms of newly-fashioned space With radiant angels beamed.
How wonderful is life in Heaven
Amid the angelic choirs, Where uncreated Love has crowned
His first created fires !
But, see ! new marvels gather there !
The wisdom of the Son With Heaven's completest wonder ends
The work so well begun.
Sweet Saviour! bless us ere we go;
Thy word into our minds instil; And make our lukewarm hearts to glow
With lowly love and fervent will. Through life's long day and death's dark night O gentle Jesus! be our light.
The day is done; its hours have run;
And Thou hast taken count of all,— The scanty triumphs grace hath won,
The broken vow, the frequent fall. Through life's long day and death's dark night, O gentle Jesus ! be our light.
