27. We need not soar above the skies

1 We need not soar above the skies,
Leave suns and stars below,
And seek thee, with unclouded eyes,
In all that angels know;
The very breath we now inhale,
The pulse in every heart,
Attest with force that can not fail,
Thou art--O God! thou art!

2 If, 'midst the ever-during songs
Of universal joy--
The chime of worlds and chant of tongues--
The praise that we employ
May breathe its music in thine ear,
Its meaning in thy heart,
Our glad confession deign to hear
Thou art--O God! thou art!
