A DEEP-BASSED thunder-rolling psalm
Sweeps thro' the reeded throat of Time,
And charms the ear of every clime
With music of the great "I Am."

It drags the planets in their orbs,
And smites the sun, and shakes the stars,
And strikes the rocky-bedded bars,
And beats about the aerial curbs!

Creation chants the nameless Name,
The winging worlds in chorus ring;
The great lands shout; the huge seas sing
The thundering heavens roar, "I Am!"
