109R Has Not Your Heart Within You Burned


1. Has not your heart with-in you burned
at even-ing's* calm and ho-ly hour,
as if its in-most depths dis-cerned
the pre-sence of a lof-tier power?

2. Have not you heard mid for-est glades
while an-cient ri-vers mur-mured by,
a voice from the e-ter-nal shades
that spoke a truth from heaven on high?

3. Was it the voice of God speak-ing
in si-lence to your si-lent heart,
per-chance each worth-ier thought bid-ding,
that eve-ry dream of earth de-part?

4. O voice of God, for-ev-er near,
in low, sweet ac-cents whis-pering peace,
make us your har-mo-nies to hear
whose heaven-ly e-choes nev-er cease.

* or 'the dawn's'
