So Many

So many stars in infinite space—

So many worlds in the light of God’s face,

So many storms ere the thunders shall


So many paths to the portals of Peace.

So many years, so many tears—

Sighs and sorrows and pangs and prayers.

So many ships in the desolate night—

So many harbors, and only one Light.

So many creeds like the weeds in the sod—

So many temples, and only one God.
