The Light of Life


I love you in all the star wrought graces of the skies,

In the Isis of beauty that about me lies;

Waiting for Thy touch of love to awaken in splendid flame

The ever-coursing thunder of Thy name.


Oh, splendid One, Thou mysterious, unspeakable,

Coursing through my veins in agony unbearable:

Oh, Light of Life in splendrous rapture of delight

Who fills my veins with life in majesty of might.


As a mote in the strong sunbeam dances

So dance I as a creation of Thy fancies.

These words of mine are but chaff upon the wind

Compared to the intensity of Thy glance and Thy mind.


Bind my everlasting passage and path with Thee

From life to life, from aeon to aeon for all eternity.

Bring me closer to Thy Heart that I may be fit symbol

Of Thine encompassing love and hold me lest I tremble.


Ah, Lord, these words are poor that fall before Thy face,

Fill me and lend me still of Thy intoxicating grace

That I may love and pour my heart out in Thy praise

And joined forever with Thee remain a Star ablaze.
