“Oh that I knew” by George Herbert

“Oh that I knew how all thy lights combine,
And the configurations of their glory!
Seeing not only how each verse doth shine,
But all the constellations of the story.”

–George Herbert, from “The H. Scriptures II” in Herbert: Poems (Everyman Library) (New York: Knopf, 2004), 49.
