Subject(s): Religion; Theology


When the departing, great sun stands
And plants, on the last hill, his feet,
He comes; likewise to morning lands,
Or down a dim and crowded street.

To-day I knew that ecstasy;
A soaring light was all my blood,
And, in me, voices, like the sea,
Shouted and my heart understood.

To-day He smote earth with the flame,
That clothes His presence when He comes
And earth grew vibrant with His name,
Like hidden trumpets, answering drums.
