That out of a blind, senseless universe
Did arise
Billions of eyes
Like yours and mine--
Could it be any plainer than that?

That a thousand human tongues
And billions of non-human languages
Did emerge
From an utterly meaningless universe--
What could be more convincing?

That from a heartless, dog-eat-dog universe
Did come to me
So full of love as You--
Could anything be more persuasive?

We hold these truths to be self-evident--
This here-now, non-symbolic experience of the senses
Your lovely Presence here beside me
This surrounding-us-everywhere
Enormous Cosmos
Clothed in unspeakable beauty.
