FABER'S HYMNS.
They would have run away from God For their own vileness' sake,
And feared lest some interior light From tell-tale eyes should break.
They know not how the outward smile The inward awe can prove ;
They fathom not the creature's fear Of Uncreated Love.
The majesty of God ne'er broke
On them like fire at night, Flooding their stricken souls, while they
Lay trembling in the light.
They love not; for they have not kissed
The Saviour's outer hem : They fear not; for the Living God
Is yet unknown to them.
