It was too late for man

It was too late for man,
But early yet for God;
Creation impotent to help,
But prayer remained our side.

 

How excellent the heaven,
When earth cannot be had;
How hospitable, then, the face
Of our old neighbor, God!

 

*****

 

Późno było człowiekowi,
Pora młoda Bogu;
Pomóc niewładne stworzenie,
Ale modlitwa u boku.

 

Jakże niebiosa wyborne,
Gdy ziemi niewolić nie sposób;
Jakże oblicze gościnne wtedy
Boga, sąsiada dobrego!
