Page 387 - Heaven's righteous laws to scan, Or trace the courses of the starry host, To these the writer's learned toil to plan, To these the battle's pride and victor's boast ; Where in the well-fought field the war-troop pour Full on the wall of shields the arrows flickering shower.
Page 387 - Thrice Holy He, The Spirit Son of Deity ! He call'd from nothing into birth Each fair production of the teeming earth ; He bids the faithful and the just aspire To join in endless bliss Heaven's angel choir. His love bestows on human kind Each varied excellence of mind. To some his Spirit-gift affords The power and mastery of words : So may the wiser sons of earth proclaim, In speech and measured song, the glories of his name.
