Mirror Dimly


Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Can you image God at all?

Peer through dark and dull distortion:
In your heart a homeless orphan,
Vast eternity's proportion,
Softly sighs its lonesome call.

Mirror, mirror, on the tree,
What of God may mortals see?

Picture for your comprehension
Truth transposed to man's dimension:
Holy love's divine intention
In your pauper's place to be.

Mirror, mirror, in the sky,
Beam you light from God on high?

Find in faith a fit reflection
Of the Crucified's perfection
Reckoned yours in resurrection:
God and man forever nigh.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
