I leaned back from her and, in the porte-cochere lights, I read in her face the delight that had been there when she opened the door, but also a deeper joy that I had not initially recognized.
Я оторвался от нее, прочитал на ее лице радость, ту самую, которую увидел, когда она открывала входную дверь, и более глубинную, ранее мною не замеченную.

Delight,-top-gallant delight is to him, who acknowledges no law or lord, but the Lord his God, and is only a patriot to heaven.
Благодать, высокая как брамсель, благодать тому, кто не признает ни закона, ни господина, кроме Господа своего Бога, у кого одно отечество — небеса.
