Will he recall the prison
of field and shore,
a world that now is vanished,
that sings no more?

Will he renew the music
of virgin choirs,
the life of holy rapture
that never tires?

From the poem The Disguised God, by Hjalmar Gullberg, translation by John Michael Hearne. The poem was made into a lyrical suite by the composer Lars-Erik Larsson in 1940.
