In creation’s translucent rays I flow.
God’s inexorable laws I know.
So I rise to empyrean zenith
Where in diligent devotion I Knit
Sublime spirits’ cloaks, and I greet
Many a kindred beings; whom I meet
Along the pearl-rich path so wondrous
To describe, and with seraph wings
Soar the azure isle emboldened by joyous
tones, o what this All-reconciling love brings
Is beyond mankind apprehension.
Divine Purity is heaven’s foundation…
