"I Have Found Her"

IN the living world I have found her, found her,

For whom I have waited a whole life long;

Dreams and Desires go dancing round her,

Hopes and Visions about her throng.

In the living world I have found her, found her--

Gracious, and wise, and tall, and strong;

I have knelt at her feet, I have throned and crowned her

With love, and music, and beauty, and song.

In the living world I have found her, found her,

For whom I have hungered a whole life long.
