368. oldal - But the effluence of Thy light divine, Pervading worlds, hath reached my bosom too ; Yes! in my spirit doth Thy spirit shine, As shines the sunbeam in a drop of dew.
368. oldal - The chain of being is complete in me, In me is matter's last gradation lost, And the next step is spirit — Deity. I can command the lightning, and am dust; A monarch, and a slave ; a worm, a god.

367. oldal - Yes! as a drop of water in the sea, All this magnificence in Thee is lost : — What are ten thousand worlds compared to Thee?
367. oldal - In its sublime research, philosophy May measure out the ocean deep, may count The sands, or the sun's rays; but God, for thee There is no weight nor measure: none can mount Up to thy mysteries.

367. oldal - To trace thy counsels, infinite and dark ; And thought is lost ere thought can soar so high, Even like past moments in eternity. Thou from primeval nothingness didst call First chaos, then existence : Lord, on thee Eternity had its foundation ; all Sprung forth from thee, — of light, joy, harmony, Sole origin. All life, all beauty, thine...
367. oldal - A million torches lighted by thy hand Wander unwearied through the blue abyss : They own thy power, accomplish thy command, All gay with life, all eloquent with bliss. What shall we call them? — piles of crystal light? A glorious company of golden streams ? Lamps of celestial ether burning bright ? Suns lighting systems with their joyous beams?
