John Henry Newman (Джон Генри Ньюмен)


Behind the Veil


BANISH'D the House of sacred rest,
Amid a thoughtless throng,
At length I heard its creed confess'd,
And knelt the saints among.

Artless his strain and unadorn'd,
Who spoke Christ's message there;
But what at home I might have scorn'd,
Now charm'd my famish'd ear.

Lord, grant me this abiding grace,
Thy Word and sons to know;
To pierce the veil on Moses' face,
Although his speech be slow. 



John Henry Newman's other poems:
  1. Opusculum
  2. The Sign of the Cross
  3. Flowers without Fruit
  4. Reverses
  5. Solitude
