ETERNAL and Omnipotent Unseen!
Who badest the world, with all its lives complete,
Start from the void and thrill beneath thy feet,
Thee I adore with reverence serene;
Here, in the fields, thine own cathedral meet,
Built by thyself, star-roofed, and hung with green,
Wherein all breathing things in concord sweet,
Organed by winds, perpetual hymns repeat:
Here hast thou spread that book to every eye,
Whose tongue and truth all, all may read and prove,
On whose three blessed leaves -- Earth, Ocean, Sky,
Thine own right hand hath stamped might, justice, love;
Grand Trinity, which binds in due degree,
God, man, and brute, in social unity.
