Once on a mountain-top




Once on a mountain-top
There stood three startled men;
They watched the wheels of nature stop
And heaven break in.
Their friend of every day,
The face they knew for his,
They saw, for one half-hour, the way
He always is.


Yet many lived and died
Who found of him no trace.
‘Thou art a God’ (the prophet cried)
‘Who hidest thy face.’
The earth lies all explored,
The heavens are ours to climb,
And still no man has seen his God
At any time.


And minds that learn to scan
Creation like a book
Know nothing lives outside their plan,
So never look.
O Lord of hidden light,
Forgive us who despise
The things which lie beyond our sight,
And give us eyes.
