A New Light Doth Shineby Luis de Leon
English version by Anonymous
Original Language Spanish
At whose blest sound divine
My soul that in forgetfulness hath lain
With a new light doth shine
And unto memory plain
Of its first splendid origin attain.
Up through the fields of air
It wings, till in the highest sphere it dwells
And a new music there
It hears, music that wells
Undying, and all other kinds excels.
