Circle his throne rejoicing; ye in Heaven, SUPREME! O teach me what is good. Teach me THYSELF! Him first, him laft, him midst, and without end. Save me from folly, vanity, and vice,

Fairest of stars, last in the train of night, From every low pursuit! and feed my soul

If better thou belong not to the dawn, With knowledge, conscious peace, and virtue Sure pledge of day, that crown'st the finiling morn Sacred, fubftantial, never-fading bliss! [pure; While day arises, that Tweet hour of prime.

With thy bright circlet, praise hiin in thy sphere,

In thy eternal course, both when thou climb'st, Nature's immortal, immaterial fun! And when high noon haft gain’d, and when thou Whose all-prolific beam late call'd me forth

fall’ft. From darkness, teeming darkness, where I lay Moon, that now meet'st the orient fun, now fly'st The worm's inferior, and in rank bencath With the fix'd stars, fix'd in their orb that flies, The duft I tread on, high to bear my brow;

And ye five other wand'ring fires that move To drink the spirit of the golden day;

In mystic dance, not without fong, resound And triumph in existence; and couldnt know His praise, who out of darkness call'd up light, No motive, but my bliss; and haft ordain'd Air, and ye elements, the eldest birth A rise in blessing! with the Patriarcb's joy,

Of Nature's womb, that in quaternion run Thy call I follow to the land unknown. Perpetual circle, multiform; and mix I trust in Thee, and know in whom I trust; And nourish all things; let your ceaseless change Or life, or death, is equal; neither weighs!

Vary to our great Maker still new praise. All weight in this-0 let me live to Thee!

Breathe fofcor loud; and wave your tops, ye Pines L'oipeakable, who site'st above these Heavens With every plant in sign of worship wave. To us invisible, or dimly feen

Fountains, and ye that warble as ye flow
In these thy lowest works; yet these declare Melodious murmurs, warbling tune his praise.

Thy goodness beyond thought, and pow'r divine. Join voices, all ye living Souls; yc Birds,
Speak ye who best can tell, ye fons of light, That singing up to Heaven's gate ascend,
Angels; for ye behold hiin, a:d with longs Bear on your wings and in your potes his praise.
