by: Edward Dowden (1843-1913)
- HEN weight of all the garnerd
- Bows me, and praise must find relief
- In harvest-song, and smiles and tears
- Twist in the band that binds my sheaf;
- Thou known Unknown, dark, radiant sea
- In whom we live, in whom we move,
- My spirit must lose itself in Thee,
- Crying a name--Life, Light, or Love.
