No more th' effulgent glory of thy God
Speaks awful answers from the mystic cloud,
No more thine altars blaze with fire divine,
And heav'n has left tly solitary shrine.
Yet, in thy courts, hereafter shalt thou see
Presence immediate of the Deity,
The light himself reveal'd, the God confess'd in thee.

And now, at length the fatal term of years
The world's desire have brought, and lo! the God appears.
The heav'nly babe the virgin mother bears,
And her fond looks confess the parent's cares.
The pleasing burden on hor breast she lays,
Hangs o'er his charms, and with a smile surveys.
The infant smiles, to her fond bosom prest,
And wantons, sportive, on the mother's breast,
A radiant glory speaks him all divine,
And in the child the beams of Godhead shine,

But now alas ! far other views disclose,
The blackest comprehensive scene of woes,
See where men's voluntary sacrifice
Bows his meek head, and God eternal dies!
Fixt to the cross, bis healing arms are bound,
While copious mercy streams from ev'ry wound !
Mark the blood-drops that life exhausting roll,
And the strong pang that rends the stubborn soul !
As all death's tortures with severe delay,
Exult and riot, in the noblest

prey.
And can'st thou, stupid Man, those sorrows see,
Nor share the anguish which he bears for thee?
Thy sin, for which his sacred flesh is torn,
Points ev'ry nail and sharpens ev'ry thorn;
Can'st thou ?- -while nature smarts in ev'ry wound,
And each pang cleaves the sympathetic ground!
Lo! the black sun, his chariot backward driv'n,
Blats out the day, and perishes from heav'n:
Earth, trembling from her entrails, bears a part,
And the rent rock upbraids men's stubborn heart..
The yawning grave reveals his gloomy reign;
And the cold clay-clad dead start into life again,

And thou, O tomb, once more shalt wide display,
Thy satiate jaws, and give up all thy prey,
Thou, groaning earth shalt heave absorpt in flame,
As the last pangs convulse thy lab'ring frame;
When the same God unshrouded thou shalt see,
Wrapt in full blaze of power and majesty.

Ride on the clouds; whilst as his chariot flies,
The bright effusion streams thro' all the skies,
Then shall the proud dissolving mountains glow,
And yielding rocks in fiery rivers flow :
The molten deluge round the globe shall roar.
And all mens arts and labours be no more.
Then shall the splendors of th' enliven'd glass
Sink undistinguish'd in the burning mass.
And O! till carth, and seas, and heav'n decay.
Ne’er may that fair creation fade away;
May winds and storms those beauteous colours spare,
Still may they bloom, as permanent as fair,
All the vain rage of wasting time repell,
And his tribunal see, whose cross they point so well.
