[34] On all thou lookest we shall look,
     And to our gaze erelong shall turn
That page of God's mysterious book
     We so much wish yet dread to learn.

With Him, before whose awful power
     Thy spirit bent its trembling knee;
Who, in the silent greeting flower,
     And forest leaf, looked out on thee,

We leave thee, with a trust serene,
     Which Time, nor Change, nor Death can move,
While with thy childlike faith we lean
     On Him whose dearest name is Love!
