The Night Sky

Look...listen...

The middle of the night is come
I gaze at 'yond expanse...
too much remains unfathomed with
a casual, fleeting glance!
Thus am I held thrall 'fore this
o'erwhelmingest of sights,
captivated wholly, this
most crystalline of nights!

"Though captive so, let me not ever
fathom what I see
lest I become contented and
neglect to honor Thee!
'But just to realize that it
is from Your mighty hand,'
God Almighty, this is all
I need to understand!"

Listen...away from all noise...
Look...away from all sources of light save that above...
Be alone there with Him Who makes it all.  Be affected.
1752
