Extinguish Thou My Eyes

Extinguish Thou my eyes:I still can see Thee,
Deprive my ears of sound:I still can hear Thee,
And without feet I still can come to Thee,
And without voice I still can call to Thee.

Sever my arms from me, I still will hold Thee
With all my heart as with a single hand,
Arrest my heart, my brain will keep on beating,
And Should Thy fire at last my brain consume,
The flowing of my blood will carry Thee.
