Description
Commissioned by: Frank Rimmer, for the choir at First Presbyterian Church in Denton, Texas, in loving memory of his wife, Elizabeth Rimmer. The text is by Ralph Waldo Emerson (public domain):
We must learn that the Highest dwells within us,
that the sources of nature are in our own minds.
There is deep power in which we exist and whose beatitude is accessible to us.
It comes to the lowly and the simple;
it comes to whosever will put off what is proud; it comes as insight;
it comes as serenity and grandeur. --the eternal One.
For ever and ever the influx of this more universal self is new and unsearchable.
Within us is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty; the eternal One.
When it breaks through our intellect it is genius;
when it breathes through our will it is virtue;
when it breathes through our affections it is love
