Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ...and shine on high. WHEN THE ANGELS ALL ARE SINGING. Sir Nicholas Brrton. WHEN the angels all are singing All of glorie euer springing In the ground of high heauen's graces, Where all vertues haue their places; Oh that my poore soule were neare them, With an humble heart to hear them! Then should faith, in Ioue's submission Ioying but in mercie's blessing, Whore that sinnes are in remission, Sing the ioyful squle's confessing; Of her comforts high commending All in glorie neuer ending. But, ah wretched sinfull creature! How should the corrupted nature Of this wicked heart of mine Thtnke vpon that loue diuine, That doth tune the angel's voices, While the hoast of heauen rcioyces? No! the songe of deadly sorrowe In the night that hath no morrow, And their paines are neuer ended That haue hcauenly powers offended, Is more fitting to the merite Of my foulc infected spirit. Yet while mercie is remoouing All the sorrowes of the louing, How can faith be full of blindnesse To despaire of mercie's kindnesse; While the hand of heauen is giuing Comfort for the euer-liuing? No, my soule, be no more sorie; Looke vnto that life of glorie Which the grace of faith regardeth, And the teares of loue rewardeth; Where the soule the comfort getteth, That the angels' musique set'th. There when thou art well conducted. And by heauenly grace instructed How the faithfull thoughts to fashion Of a rauisht louer's passion, Sing with sainctes to angels nighest Halleluiah in the highest. THEY PRAISE HIM DAY AND NIGHT. Mariannr Faknincham. '"THEY are perfectly blest--the redeemed and the-free--Who are resting in joy by the smooth glassy sea; They breathed here on earth all their sorrowful sighs, And Jesus has kissed all the tears from their eyes. They are happy at home!...show more
