Before God's Throne


When with these eyes, closed now by Thee,

But then restored,

The great and white throne I shall see

Of my dread LORD;

And lowly kneeling--for the most

Stiff, then must kneel,--

Shall look on Him, at Whose high cost

--Unseen--such joys I feel:--

Whatever arguments or skill

Wise heads shall use,

Tears only and my blushes still

I will produce.

And should those speechless beggars fail,

Which oft have won,

Then taught by Thee I will prevail,

And say, Thy will be done!

--from Silex Scintillans by Henry Vaughan
