‘THE ETERNAL SANCTUARY’

Hear, O Lord of my frail life! Lord of the stars beside!

Abased, I cast my faltering gaze towards Thine immensities,

And hail thee from afar, Lord of the glowing nebulae,

Upholder of the vaulted skies!

*

Though but an atom in the vast of life,

As nought within the scope of Thine infinity,

Stretching my hands in darkness unto Thee,

I cry for light!

*

Soul of the universe, Thyself unmoved,

Though worlds roll on their course

Impelled by Thy swift word, ~

Hear me, O Lord, be moved by mortal tears!

*

Heal Thou my sightless eyes! Remove ~

My blind unconsciousness of thine unfolding over,

Mine ignorance of Thy majestic laws;

Forgive my drowsy will,

*

My fragile comprehension of Thy mysteries!

Forgive these things in me, who, even as I pray,

(So impotent am I to frame a thought of Thee)

Must fear within my heart’s poor shrine

An image vain of Thee,

*

Ere prayer can mount upon its soaring wings.

Relight my spirits deep, cavernous and grey, alas,

With tangled growth of flowerless thoughts

And dross washed away from plain and wastes

*

*

Of long past days. Breathe Thou

The breath of Thy great winds cross my soul

Moving her stagnant waters into waves, that roll

With living strength, resurgent towards Love’s goal; ~

*

For what is Life, were Love not all?

So shall my languid soul, quickened to Life by Thee,

Escape her lethargy,

a unicorn white

*

As some parched stream, in sudden flood,

Escape the pools, to reach the distant sea,

Finding at last, within Thy breast,

Eternal Sanctuary.
