We raise our eyes as Jacob did
To view the high ascent of praise;
Great unseen angels now appear
Afar, how awesome is this place!
And there, undwelt by any man,
The emblems of uncounted years
Arise, each pinnacled and towered
And terraced, lit with silent stars.
And shall we walk within the gate,
Shall mortal man ascend, be led
With angels clothed in sacred flame,
Within the very name of God?
