The heart of night, composed by Margaret King, August 2020, for Pro Coro Canada


The Hear of Night

Poem by Carman Bliss


When all the stars are sown

Across the night-blue space,

With the immense unknown,

In silence face to face.


We stand in speechless awe

While Beauty marches by,

And wonder at the Law

Which wears such majesty.

How small a thing is man

In all that world-sown vast,

That he should hope or plan

Or dream his dream could last!


O doubter of the light,

Confused by fear and wrong,

Lean on the heart of night

And let love make thee strong!

The Good that is the True

Is clothed with Beauty still.

Lo, in their tent of blue,

The stars above the hill!
