Looking for the poem....

In the movie "Far From Heaven", the gardener quotes "Just behind the fall from grace, I behold that shining place"......

Is this from a poem, and if so, does anyone know the author and the rest of the text? By the way, this is a great site - I just found it! Thanks for any help!

I haven't seen the movie but I think I remember from the PREVIEW that the gardener is Black. That and the fact that I can't find these lines in a poetry search make me wonder if they are words from a gospel hymn. Or they could have been written by the author of the screenplay with the intention of sounding LIKE a hymn.

Just a thought -- I have NOT seen the movie.
