HYMN XXXII
In praise of Heaven and Earth

1 Ye people, hear and mark this well: he will pronounce a mighty
prayer:
That which gives breathing to the Plants is not on earth nor in,
the heaven.

2 Their station, as of those who rest when weary, is in midmost air:
The base whereon this world is built, the sages know or know
it not.

3 What the two trembling hemispheres and ground produced and
fashioned forth.
This All, is ever fresh to-day, even as the currents of the sea.

4 This All hath compassed round the one, and on the other lies
at rest.
To Earth and all-possessing Heaven mine adoration have I paid.
