On Heaven

by Robert Herrick, 1647

Permit mine eyes to see
Part, or the whole of Thee,
O happy place!
Where all have grace,
And garlands shar’d,
For their reward;
Where each chaste soul
In long white stole,
And palms in hand,
Do ravish’d stand;
So in a ring,
The praises sing
Of Three in One
That fill the Throne;
While harps and viols then
To voices say, Amen.
