The Soul's Quest and Other Poems

by Frederick George Scott


 

AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM


 

THY glory alone, O God, be the end of all that I say;
Let it shine in every deed, let it kindle the prayers that I pray;
Let it burn in my innermost soul, till the shadow of self pass away,
And the light of Thy glory, O God, be unveiled in the dawning of day.

1885.
