George Willis Cooke, comp.  The Poets of Transcendentalism: An Anthology.  1903.
By John Sullivan Dwight (1813–1893)
MUSIC ’S the measure of the planet’s motion,
  Heart-beat and rhythm of the glorious whole;
Fugue-like the streams roll, and the choral ocean
  Heaves in obedience to its high control.
Thrills through all hearts the uniform vibration,        5
  Starting from God, and felt from sun to sun;
God gives the key-note, Love to all creation;
  Join, O my soul, and let all souls be one!
