VISION OF THE GREAT GOD




O might I once mount up and see,
The glories of th’ eternal skies!
What little things these worlds would be!
How despicable to my eyes!


Had I a glance of thee, my God,
Kingdoms and men would vanish soon;
Vanish, as though I saw them not,
As a dim candle dies at noon.


Then they might fight, and rage, and rave:
I should perceive the noise no more
Than we can hear a shaking leaf;
While rattling thunders round us roar.


Great All in All! eternal King!
Let me but view thy lovely face,
And all my powers shall bow, and sing
Thine endless grandeur, and thy grace.
