From Heaven's height
From heaven's height Christ spake to call
the gentiles' great apostle, Paul,
whose doctrine, like the thunder, sounds
to the wide world's remotest bounds.
O bliss of Paul, beyond all though,
to paradise, yet living, caught!
He hears the heavenly mysteries there,
which mortal tongue cannot declare.
The word's good seed abroad he flings;
straightway a mighty harvest springs,
and fruits of holy deeds supply
God's everlasting granary.
The lamp his burning faith displays
has filled the world with glorious rays;
that darkness' realm may be o'erthrown,
and Christ may reign, and reign alone.
