And in the perfect time, O perfect God

Language: English

[And]1 in the perfect time, [O perfect God,]1
When we are in our [home, our]1 natal home,
[When joy shall carry every sacred load,
And from its life and peace no heart shall roam,]1
What if thou make us able to make like thee --
To light with moons, to clothe with greenery,
To hang gold sunsets o'er a rose and purple sea!
