First Line: I saw the face of god today
Last Line: The ardent gaze of god on mine.
Subject(s): God

I saw the face of God to-day,
I heard the music of His smile,
And y et I was not far away,
And yet in Paradise the while.

I lay upon the sparkling grass,
And God's own mouth was kissing me,
And there was nothing that did pass
But blazed with divinity.

Divine -- divine -- upon my eyes,
Upon mine hair -- divine -- divine,
The fervour of the golden skies,
The ardent gaze of God on mine.
