At High Mass

The pomp of clouds; the glory of the sea;
Music of water; song-birds' melody;
The organ of Thy thunder in the air;
Breath of the rose; and beauty everywhere--
Lord, take this stately service done to Thee,
The grave enactment of Thy Calvary

In jewelled pomp and splendour pictured there!
Lord, take the sounds and sights; the silk and gold;
The white and scarlet; take the reverent grace
Of ordered step; window and glowing wall--
Prophet and Prelate, holy men of old;
And teach us children of the Holy Place
Who love Thy Courts, to love Thee best of all.
