The Shining Place


"The Shining Place" is a song by Lee Hoiby setting the text of Emily Dickinson.

Me — come! My dazzled face (431)
by Emily Dickinson

Me — come! My dazzled face
In such a shining place!
Me — hear! My foreign Ear
The sounds of Welcome — there!

The Saints forget
Our bashful feet —

My Holiday, shall be
That They — remember me —
My Paradise — the fame
That They — pronounce my name —
