Poem taken from

'The Quest'

Brighter than the noonday,

More brilliant than the sun,

Your face outshines all earthly light,

O incandescent One!


Purer than the snowflake,

More fragrant than the rose,

Your glory fills all beauteous things,

Yet lovelier far than those.


Dearer than all treasure,

More tender than a kiss,

Your love outlasts all earthly love

And leads to heavenly bliss.

Closer than a heartbeat,

More hushed than indrawn sigh

Your presence in my inmost soul

Suffuses me with joy.


O beauty that arrests me,

That holds me now in thrall,

I own the conquest of my heart

And make You Lord of all.
