SOUL of the acorn buried in the sod,
Lord of high trees and sunset haunted hills,
Planter of primroses and Very God
Of the bright daffodils,
Pity the weakness of the growing grain --
And drench our fields with rain.

Soul of the Light and Spirit of the Sword,
Flash one great thought through hosts of huddled years,
God of great deeds and dream-inspired Lord
Of pity and of tears,
Pity the weary ploughman's barren toil --
Cast sunshine on the soil.

Dream of dim lights and twilight-haunted wind,
Spirit that moves upon the waters' face,
Lighten the wave-washed caverns of the mind
With a pale starry grace:
Pity the midnight hours of Death and Birth,
Bring Hope back to the earth.
