I Care not how the great God made
The stars, the universe, the suns;
What methods Love and Time displayed
Through labors wholly undismayed,
Where Love's divining" Purpose runs;
. Nor whether in the dimming past '
Our chemistry with God were thrilled
. And held potentially and fast .,
; Our dreams of Heaven and the last
Sweet visions with which life is filled
Or that he dropped them one by one,
Great type-lives from the endless sea :
Where Love throbs in the overtone
Of Hope and Heaven and the lone ' .
Sweet murmur of Paternity! -
I only care, ah, only care 1
That God is here, there, everywhere!
