GOD EVERYWHERE, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Wheresoe'er I turn mine eyes
Last Line: Ascends to thee, to whom all praise be given.
Subject(s): God; Jews; Praise; Judaism


WHERESOE'ER I turn mine eyes
Around on Earth or toward the skies,
I see thee in the starry field,
I see thee in the harvest's yield,
In every breath, in every sound,
An echo of Thy name is found.
The blade of grass, the simple flower,
Bear witness to Thy matchless pow'r.
My every thought, Eternal God of Heaven,
Ascends to thee, to whom all praise be given.
