A description of the experience
Festus - I - Philip James Bailey
Thou who hast thousand names as night hath stars
Which light thee up to mind finite,
yet scarce Thy limitlessness illume,
nor that abyss of Being,
wherein thy wondrous attributes
Lord! thy Light,
the Light we dwell in,
shall at last, all times consumed,
Fulfil the universe,
and all be bliss.
Angel of Earth. Woe, woe, at last in heaven!
Earth to death is given.
The ends of things hang still
Over them as a sky;
Do what, do how we will,
All's for eternity.
