"I See His Blood upon the Rose"

I See His Blood upon the Rose
by Joseph Mary Plunkett
I see His blood upon the rose 
   And in the stars the glory of His eyes,
His Body gleams amid eternal snows,
   His tears fall from the skies.

I see His face in every flower;
   The thunder and the singing of the birds
Are but His voice -- and carven by His power
   Rocks are His written words.

All pathways by His feet are worn,
   His strong heart stirs the ever-beating sea,
His crown of thorns is twined with every thorn,
   His Cross is every tree.
