Original text and translations
There, in that other world, what waits for me ?
What shall I find after that other birth ?
No stormy, tossing, foaming, smiling sea,
But a new earth.
No sun to mark the changing of the days,
No slow, soft falling of the alternative night,
No moon, no star, no light upon my ways,
Only the Light.
No grey cathedral,
Wide and wondrous fair,
That I may tread
Where all my fathers trod.
Nay, nay, my soul,
No house of God is there,
But only God,
