Poetry by Christina Rossetti
Among the Blest
Hidden from the darkness of our mortal sight,
Hidden in the Paradise of lovely sight,
Hidden in God’s presence, worshipped face to face,
Hidden in the sanctuary of Christ’s embrace.
O Up, O Wills! to track him home among the bless’d;
O Up, O Hearts! to know him in the joy of rest;
Where no darkness more shall hid him from our sight,
Where we shall be love with love, and light with light,
Worshipping God together face to face,
Wishless, in the sanctuary of Christ’s embrace.
