To thee, whose temple is all space,
Whose altar, earth, sea, skies,
One chorus let all beings raise,
All nature's incense rise! Pope.
On the Goodness of God.
0 God! — of good the unfathomed sea —
Who would not give his hea'-t to thee!
Who would not love thee with his might!
O Jesus! — lover of mankind —
Who would not his whole soul and mind,
With all his strength, to thee unite!
Thou shinest with everlasting rays;
Before the insufferable blaze.
Angels, with both wings, veil their eyes; —
Yet, free as fair, thy bounty streams
On all thy works! thy mercy's beams.
Diffusive, as the sun's, arise !
Astonished, at thy frowning brow,
Earth, hell and Heaven's strong pillars bow;
Terrible majesty is thine !
AYho, then, can th t vast love express
Which bows thee down to me, who less
Than nothing am, till thou art mine.
High-throned, on heaven's eternal hill,
In number, weight and measure, still
Thou sweetly orderest all that is:
And yet thou deignest to come to me,
And guide my steps; that 1 with thee
Enthroned, may reign in endless bliss!
Fountain of good! all blessing flows
From thee — no want thy fuhiess knows:
What but thyself canst thou desire?
Yes, self-sufficient as thou art,
Thou dost desire my wortliless heart —
This, only this, dost thou require!
