Prostrate seraphim above
Breathe unutterable love.

4 Happy they who never rest,
With thy heavenly presence blest!
They the heights of glory see,
Sound the depths of Deity!

5 Fain with them our souls would vie;
Sink as low, mount as high;
Fall, o’erwhelmed with love, or soar;
Shout, or silently adore!
