And far exceed your Hope.

Bow before his hallow'd Shrine.
Hush'd to Silence, while he speaks,
Hear the awful Accents roll: 3 See, as louder yet they rise,
Echoing through the vaulted Skies,,
Cedars of steep Lebanon.
Lebanon itself retreat ;
Sirion haftes its Flight to join.
And the vivid Light'nings play,
Hear, dismay'd, th' approaching Godo. 6 Proftrate on the facred Floor

Yield its Argument of Song.
Fix'd his Throne for ever stands;

Give to the Lord Renown and Pow'r,
And his eternal Might adore.
Over the Ocean and the Land;
And Light'nings blaze at his Command.
And lo, the stately Cedars break;
The Valleys roar, the Defarts quake.
The Thund'rer reigns for ever King ;
Where we his awful Glories sing.
The Counsels of his Grace imparts;
The immense, th’ amazing Height,
Who treads the Worlds beneath his Feet,
And sways the Nations with his Nod!
Heav'n's everlasting Pillars bow;
And shoots his fiery Arrows thro'.
And drown the spacious Realms below,
And send our loud Hosannas thro'.
Kindles our Hearts to flaming Joys,
