Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Can you image God at all?
Peer through dark and dull distortion:
In your heart a homeless orphan,
Vast eternity’s proportion,
Softly sighs its lonesome call.
Mirror, mirror, on the tree,
What of God may mortals see?
Picture for your comprehension
Truth transposed to man’s dimension:
Holy love’s divine intention
In your pauper’s place to be.
Mirror, mirror, in the sky,
Beam you light from God on high?
Find in faith a fit reflection
Of the Crucified’s perfection
Reckoned yours in resurrection:
God and man forever nigh.
