855

bouring die 855

Again the glorious temple shall arise,
And with new lustre pierce the neighbouring skics.
The promis’d seat of empire shall again
Cover the mountain, and command the plain ;
And, from thy race distinguish’d, One shall spring,
Greater in act than victor, more than king 860
In dignity and power ; sent down from heaven,
To succour earth. To Him, To Him, 'tis given,
Passion, and care, and anguish, to destroy.
Through Him, soft peace, and plenitude of joy,
Perpetual o'er the world redeemid Mall flow; 865
No more may man inquire, nor angel know.

Now, Solomon ! remembering who thou art,
Act through thy remnant life the decent part.
Go forth : be strong : with patience and with care
Perform, and suffer : to thyself severe,

870
Gracious to others, thy desires fuppress’d,
Diffus'd thy virtues ; first of men ! be best.
Thy sum of duty let two words contain ;
(O may they graven in thy heart remain!)
Be humble, and be just. The angel faid. - 875
With upward speed his agile wings he spread ;
Whilst on the holy ground I prostrate lay,
By various doubts impell’d, or to obey,
Or to object : at length (my mournful look
Heaven-ward erect) determin’d thus I spoke: 880

Supreme, all-wise, eternal Potentate !
Sole Author, sole Disposer of our fate!
Enthron’d in light and immortality,
Whom no man fully fees, and none can see!
Vol XXXIII. X

885

Original of Beings! Power divine !
Since that I live, and that I think, is thine !
Benign Creator ! let thy plastic hand
Dispose its own effect ; let thy command
Restore, Great Father! thy instructed son;
And in my act may thy great will be done !

INGRAVEN ON THREE SIDES OF AN ANTIQUE LAMPY

GIVEN BY ME TO LORD HARLEY.

Antiquam hanc Lampadem

è Museo Colbertino allatam,
Domino Harleo inter Κειμήλια fua

Reponendam D. D. Matthæus Prior.
This Lamp, which Prior to his Harley gave,

Brought from the altar of the Cyprian Dame,
Indulgent Time, through future ages save,
Before the Muse to burn with purer flame !

Sperne dilectum Veneris facellum,
Sanctius, Lampas, tibi munus orno;
I, fove casto vigil Harleianas

Igne Camænas.
