    O beautiful rainbow;--all woven of light!
    There's not in thy tissue one shadow of night;
    Heaven surely is open when thou dost appear.
    And, bending thee above, the angels draw near,
    And sing,--"The rainbow! the rainbow!
    The smile of God is here."

There was an awful rainbow once in heaven;

Bright pledge of peace and sunshine! the sure tie
Of thy Lord's hand, the object of His eye!
When I behold thee, though my light be dim,
Distinct, and low, I can in thine see Him
Who looks upon thee from His glorious throne,
And minds the covenant between all and One.

Over her hung a canopy of state,
Not of rich tissue, nor of spangled gold,
But of a substance, though not animate,
Yet of a heavenly and spiritual mould,
That only eyes of spirits might behold.

Hung on the shower that fronts the golden West,
The rainbow bursts like magic on mine eyes!
In hues of ancient promise there imprest;
Frail in its date, eternal in its guise.
