1 NOT heaven alone is thine abode,
2 Maker and Lord of all;
3 For thou, the ever present God,
4 Pervadest thro' the whole.
5 The gentle zephyr speaks thy love;
6 Thunders and storms thy power:
7 Thou shin'st in suns, and stars above;
8 And here in every flower.
9 Not present more where man is plac'd,
10 In groves and flowery meads:
11 Than rocks and sea and barren waste,
12 And where no footstep treads.
[Page 226]
13 Yet not to earth and those it own,
14 Thou, Lord, can'st be confin'd;
15 Thro' thy creation equal known,
16 Acknowledg'd, present, kind.
17 Thro' all diffus'd, o'er all enthron'd,
18 Immense is thine abode;
19 Beyond what countless worlds can bound,
20 Thro' all th' existing God.
