I sought Him on the purple seas,I sought Him on the peaks aflame: Amid the gloom of giant trees And canyons lone I called His name;The wasted ways of earth I trod;In vain; in vain! I found not God. I sought Him in the hives of men,The cities grand, the hamlets grey,The temples old beyond my ken,The tabernacles of today;All life that is, from cloud to cloudI sought \u2026 Alas! I found not God. Then after roamings far and wide,In streets and seas and deserts wild,I came at last to stand besideThe death-bed of my little child,Lo! As I bent beneath the rodI raised my eyes \u2026 and there was God.
