A description of the experience

Harriet Martineau – from Arise, My Soul! And Urge thy Flight

Arise, my soul, and urge thy flight
And fix thy view on God alone
As eagles spring to meet the light
And gaze upon the radiant sun

As planets on and onward roll
As streams pour forth their swelling tide
Press on thy steady course, my soul
Nor pause, nor stop, nor turn aside

Planets and suns shall dim their fire
Earth, air and sea shall melt away
But though each star of heaven expire
Thou may'st survive that awful day

In life, in death, thy course hold on
Though nature's self in ruins lie
Pause not till heaven-gate be won
Then rest, for there thou canst not die

The source of the experience

Martineau, Harriet
