Thou wilt interpret life to me, and men

Language: English

Thou wilt interpret life to me, and men, 
art, nature, [yea]1 my own soul's mysteries;
bringing truth out, clear joyous to my ken,
Fair as the morn trampling the dull night.
Then the lone hillside shall hear exultant cries;
The joyous see me joy, the weeping weep;
The watching smile, as Death breathes on me his cold sleep.
