I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

With my lost saints, - I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
