"Where, in my name, meet two or three,"
Our Lord hath said, "I there will be!"
And so I find it well to come
for deeper rest to this still room,
For here the habit of the soul
Feels less the outer world's control;
The strength of mutual purpose pleads
more earnestly our common needs;
And from the silence multiplied
By these still forms on either side,
The world that time and sense have known
Falls off and leaves us God alone.
