He shall light up Truth's fire in Nature's night,
He shall lay upon the Earth Truth's greater Law;
Man too shall turn towards the Spirit's call...
"The Spirit shall look out through Matter's gaze
And Matter shall reveal the Spirit's face...
"A heavenlier passion shall upheave men's lives,
Their mind shall share in the ineffable gleam,
Their heart shall feel the ecstasy and the fire,
Earth's odies shall be conscious of a soul;
Mortality's bond-slaves into spiritual beings grow
And see awake the (silent) divinity...
"A Divine force shall flow through tissue and cell
And take the charge of breath and speech and act
And all the thoughts shall be a glow of suns
And every feeling a celestial thrill...
"A sudden bliss shall run through every limb.
And Nature with a mightier Presence fill.
Thus shall the Earth open to divinity
And common natures feel the wide uplift,
Illumine common acts with the Spirit's Ray
And meet the deity in common things.
"Nature shall live to manifest secret God,
The Spirit shall take up the human play,
This earthly life become the Life Divine."
