I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.

In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

With my lost saints, - I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
