That Christ, the Lord, shall come again:
And, in His scepter'd majesty,
His royal state maintain.
'Tis well. Already hath He come;
Already in the holy soul,
He makes His high and scepter'd home,
And wields supreme control.
Christ in the heart is holy love;
Nor doth He make a higher claim;
In earth below, in heaven above,
Love is His "hidden name."
He comes; but not to outward view;
He comes and makes the spirit whole:
He comes, the Beautiful, the True,
The Love-life of the soul."
- Thomas Cogswell Upham (Christ in the Soul, 'Christ in the Soul' p.19)
