Too Vast, Too Far...

Too vast, too far untouchable
For my little hands weak-
To reach to meet thee unable
My waiting heart here meek-

God! please know this little soul
May thy mercy read me
Thee ought to descend and console
From my longing heart's spree

And while thee do so for my sake
Please, grant my heart a feel
Momentous thou grace to awake
my mired heart thee to heal
