Bailey, Philip James - from Universal Hymn 05
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Snow, with thy voiceless tongue, from either pole
To zenith, preach in godliest silence God;
Who ice and frost, thy sterner brethren, armed
With glassy key to lock earth's lifewarm veins.
Praise Him reanimative.
Thy glistening down,
Thy blossoming starlets, thy crystalline flowers,
White as the wing of angel waved in Heaven
Only, shed thankful.
God exalts the pure.
On peaks sky peering, and earth's orbèd brow
Upturned as in God's arms, thy Lord adore.
