  Exultate Deo  

 

Many a flower hath perfume for its dower,
        And many a bird a song,
And harmless lambs milkwhite beside their dams
        Frolic along,--
Perfume and song and whiteness offering praise
        In humble, peaceful ways.

Man's high degree hath will and memory,
        Affection and desire;
By loftier ways he mounts of prayer and praise,
        Fire unto fire,
Deep unto deep responsive, height to height,
        Until he walk in white.

       - Christina G. Rossetti
