I saw Thee by Ray Palmer. , I saw thee.”—JOHN i. 48.
“When thou wast under the fig-tree
Part 2 of 2.
I saw the light that o’er thy face
Stole with a soft, suffusing glow,
As if, within, celestial grace
Breathed the same bliss that angels know.
I saw—what thou didst not—above
Thy lowly head an open heaven;
And tokens of thy Father’s love
With smiles to thy rapt spirit given.
I saw thee from that sacred spot
With firm and peaceful soul depart;
I, Jesus, saw thee,—doubt it not,—
And read the secrets of thy heart!
