113. I Want to Feel Thee Just Behind the Voice of My Prayer

O Father, Thou art just behind my vision, with which I see Thy beauty without. Thou art just behind my listening power, with which I hear Thy voice in creation. Thou art just behind my touch, with which I feel Thy world. In the sweetness of flowers, and in the zest of sustaining food, lies hidden the essence of Thy being — Thine eternal sweetness. Thou art just behind the voice of my prayer. Thou art just behind the mind, with which I pray. Thou art just behind my glistening feelings. Thou art just behind my thoughts. Thou art just behind my cravings for Thee. Thou art just behind my meditations. Thou art just behind the veil of nature’s splendors. Thou art just behind the screen of my love. Reveal Thyself as Thou art, behind these mystic screens.
