San Miniato (Author: Oscar Wilde)
- 1] SEE, I have climbed the mountain side
2] Up to this holy house of God,
3] Where once that Angel-Painter trod
4] Who saw the heavens opened wide,
- 5] And throned upon the crescent moon
6] The Virginal white Queen of Grace,
7] Mary! could I but see thy face
8] Death could not come at all too soon.
- 9] O crowned by God with thorns and pain!
10] Mother of Christ! O mystic wife!
11] My heart is weary of this life
12] And over-sad to sing again.
- 13] O crowned by God with love and flame!
14] O crowned by Christ the Holy One!
15] O listen ere the searching sun
16] Show to the world my sin and shame.
