The Human Cry

by Alfred Tennyson


Original Language English

Hallowed be Thy name -- Halleluiah! --
Infinite Ideality!
Immeasurable Reality!
Infinite Personality!
Hallowed be Thy name -- Halleluiah!

We feel we are nothing -- for all is Thou and in Thee;
We feel we are something -- that also has come from Thee;
We know we are nothing -- but Thou wilt help us to be.
Hallowed be Thy name -- Halleluiah!

-- from The Oxford Book of Mystical Verse, Edited by D. H. S. Nicholson / Edited by A. H. E. Lee
