Where can I go from Thee!
All present Beity!
Nature, and time, and thought, thine im
T?;rough earth, or sea, or sky.
Though far afar! I fly,
I turn, and find Thee present with me there.
The perfume of the rose,
And every flower that blows,
All mark thy love, in clusters of the vale;
The corn that crowns the fields,
The fruits the garden yields,
Proclaim the bounties that can never fail.
The vapor and the cloud,
The thunder bursting loud,
Speak of Thy majesty in words of flame;
The ocean as it roars,
Lashing the rocks and shores',
Declares from what a mighty hand it came.
The vasty globes that roll,
Each on its own firm pole,
Thro' all the boundless fields of space alone,
Prove that indeed Thou art,
The life-wheel and the heart.
Of systems to our little world unknown.
From Thee I cannot fly;
Thine all-observing eye,
Marks the minutest atom of thy reign;
How far so'er I go,
Thou all my path would'st know,
And bring the wanderer to this earth again.
But why should I depart?
'Tis safety where Thou art;
And could one tpot thy being hold,
I, poor, and vain, and weik.
That sacred spot would seek,
And dwell within the shelter of Thv fold !
