1 coR. II, 9. '27
I CORINTHIANS II, 9.
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Hast thou an eye that lores to trace the charm That lingers here in nature's fields of light ?
Say, hast thou gazed at the mild sunset calm, Until thy heart has melted at the sight ?
Lov'st thou to watch, at twilight's sacred hour, The gorgeous cloud of many a tinted fold ?
And has the moon-lit eve a sacred power To waken the sublime within thy soul ?
Lies there a charm on the blue wave by night, Reflecting from its brow the stars above ?
And read'st thou with a deep, untold delight, In nature's loveliness, a God of love ?
Hast thou an ear to music well attuned, That catches each harmonious sound below,
And, moving those deep chords so finely strung, Bids the rich strains of wildest music flow ?
Lov'st thou the sounds which waken in the grove, Or by the streamlet at the hush of eve,
When unseen hands o'er nature's harp-strings move, And garments for the soul of music weave ?
