I Hear the Feet of God
'Deep in the dark, I hear the feet of God;
He walks the world, He puts His holy hand
on every sleeper...
Benedictions on each one -
then passes on, but ah! whene'er He meets
a watcher waiting for Him, He is glad..
He rests His hand upon the watcher's brow
but more than that, He leaves His very Breath
upon the watcher's soul; and more than this:
He stays for holy hours where watchers pray;
and more than that, He oft times lifts the veils
that hide the visions of the worlds unseen.
The brightest sanctities of highest souls
have blossomed into beauty in the dark.'
(written by 'A Religious,' LISTENING TO THE INDWELLING PRESENCE, Pellegrini, Sydney, 1940, p. 42)
