1 He was there alone, when even
Had round earth its mantle thrown,
Holding intercourse with heaven:
He was there alone.
2 There his inmost heart's emotion
Made he to his Father known;
In the spirit of devotion
Musing there alone.
3 So let us, from earth retiring,
Seek our God and Father's throne;
And, to other scenes aspiring,
Train our hearts, alone.
