Listen to My Soul-Song

Come… Listen to my soul-song!
The darkness burst,
And Thy descending shafts of light
Pierced the hearts of gloom
To listen to my soul-song!

Behind the screen of my eyes,
Though hidden Thou art,
Thou dost remain unseen
To listen to my soul-song.

Burst the veils! Burst the blue!
Burst all lights!
And come to me as Thou art,
To listen to my soul-song.

Burst my senses and my mind!
Burst my heart and feeling!
Burst my silence and my soul
To listen to my soul-song.

Burst the heart! Burst the sky!
Burst the soul!
And come, listen to my soul-song,
Come, listen to my soul-song!

In the breeze I feel Thy touch;
In the sun, Thy warm love;
In the colorful scenery, Thy beauty-face;
In the waves, I see Thee dancing—
Dancing, ever anon!
Thou art dancing o’er my thoughts
To listen to my soul-song.

Listen to my soul-song!
Break the heart, break the sky, break the soul!
Come, listen to my soul-song!
Hovering o’er the clouds,
Lingering o’er the lea—
Thou hast come
To listen to my soul-song.

Beneath the gloom of my dim devotion,
Hidden Thou dost remain—
To listen to my soul-song.
