Then o'er the vast expanse primordial wind
Breith'd gently, till a lucid bubble rose,
Earth no such beauty knows.
Till from its bursting shell with lovely state
Who not as mortals steep
Their eyes in dewy sleep,
Kemel or Pedma, or whate'er high name
Forth from thy verdant stem ?
He stood, and round his eyes fire-darting threr :
Their spring nor saw nor knew;
With restless pain for ages he inquir'd
He rose, and rising heard
“ Brehma ! no more in vain research persist,
Hail self-existent, in celestial speech
Whose beauties who can teach?
Than sunbeams brighter in meridian glow,
Dire evil's constant foe!
The pointed Checra, by thy fingers whirld,
Fierce Kytabh shall destroy, and Medhu grim
Such views my senses dim,
My eyes in darkness swim :
Bids from each sense bright emanations beam;
That crowns each vernal bow'r;
Of every bird that hails the bloomy spring,
Till rocks and forests ring;
Or where the precious musk-deer playful rove:
Soft banks and verd’rous hills
Thy present influence fills;
That in th' ethereal fluid blaze and breathe;
Mountains, whose radiant spires
Hence! vanish from my sight:
My soul absorbid One only Being knows,
Suns hence derive their force, ,
llence planets learn their course ; But suns and fading worlds I view no more, God only 1 perceive, God only I adore.
Hast thou beheld the lightning stream
Hast thou the wond'rous scenes survey'd,
'Twas God who form'd the concave sky,
'Tis he that bids the tempest rise,
His goodness all his creatures share,
Written during the late tremendous thunder-storm.
HOW dread the crash! how vivid is that glare !
Now Atheist tremble and deny thy God; And face his heralds, and his vengeance dare,
Or bow submissive to his awful nod.
Again it rolls, and Albion's centre quakes,
Again the lightnings flash from pole to pole; The domes resound, the solid fabric shakes, And nature seems to war withúùt controúl.
Emblem, faint emblem of that coming day,
When the loud clarion shall awake the ball;
