C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
From Bobrov—The Golden Palace
By Sir John Bowring (1792–1872)
 
From ‘Specimens of the Russian Poets’

[Sung at midnight in the Greek churches the last week before Easter.]

THE GOLDEN palace of my God
  Tow’ring above the clouds I see
Beyond the cherubs’ bright abode,
  Higher than angels’ thoughts can be:
How can I in those courts appear        5
  Without a wedding garment on?
Conduct me, Thou life-giver, there;
  Conduct me to Thy glorious throne:
And clothe me with thy robes of light,
And lead me through sin’s darksome night,        10
      My Savior and my God!
