Aesthetic Papers/Hymn of a Spirit Shrouded
HYMN OF A SPIRIT SHROUDED.
O God! who, in thy dear still heaven,
Dost sit, and wait to see
The errors, sufferings, and crimes
Of our humanity,
How deep must be thy Causal love!
How whole thy final Care!
Since Thou, who rulest over all,
Canst see, and yet canst bear.
