A Kind of Doxology

on

Woe! Woe is me!
For the Lord, the MOST High
Holy, Holy, HOLY is He!
Far above, and beyond
The stretch of every mortal mind
Is the vast one, the great one
the unimaginable I BE!

What shores off your majesty?
Or who can curtain your glory?
Is it not overwhelming!
How terrible, how mortifying
Is your infinite authority.
Woe, woe, woe is me!

Today I know something
of the Poverty of words, indeed
the very lack in a sound mind
to hold itself together in temerity
Impossible! if one has beheld
The LORD, Most High, Holy!
