First Line: Athwart the sky the great sun sails
Last Line: Revolving man to god again.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): God

Athwart the sky the great sun sails,
Through æons thus, the daylight trails,
And man, living breath of the sod
Beholding, in his heart knows God.

Throughout the night's long brooding deep,
Earth's trustful children die-to-sleep,
But with the whisperings of morn
Awake, unto the day, new-born.

The mystery of earth untold,
The great infinite, none behold,
Forge ever new the spiral chain,
Revolving man to God again.
