3 See, how the Conqu’ror mounts on high,
and to his Father flies, With Scars of Honour in his Flesh, :
and Triumph in his Eyes. 4 There our exalted Saviour reigns,
and sends his Blessings down; Our Jesus fills the middle Seat
of the celeftial Throne. 5 Raise your Devotion, mortal Tongues,
to reach his bless'd Abode: Sweet be the Accents of your Songs,
to our incarnate God. 6 Bright Angels, strike your loudest Strings,
your sweetest Voices raise ;

The God of Truth and Love;
He took his Seat above:
He rules o'er Earth and Heav'n;
Lift up your Hearts, lift up your Voice,

With pure Seraphic Joy:...

To their eterna! Home:

in these cold Hearts of ours. 2 Look how we grovel here below,
fond of these earthly Toys; Our Souls, how heavily they go
to reach eternal Joys!

and our Devotion dies,
Dear Lord! and shall we ever live,
at this poor dying Rate?
and thine to us so great?
with all thy quick’ning Pow'rs;

The Day of Pentecost is come!
Open your Hearts to make him Room,
Calmly we wait the promis'd Grace,
And stamp on ev'ry Heart thy Seal.

And let the Promise now take place!
And send us down the Comforter. 2 He visits now the troubled Breaft, And oft relieves our fad Complaint;
But soon we lose the transient Gueft,
Our Joy is filed, our Comfort gone ! 3 Haften him, Lord, into each Heart, Our sure inseparable Guide:
O might we meet and never part!
might be in our Hearts abide!

And lighten with celestial Fire,

With the Abundance of thy Grace.
Where Thou art Guide no IlI can come. 4 Teach us to know the Fa:her, Son,
And Thee of both to be but One;
