They are weeping in the playtime of the others, In the country of the free.

Unspeakable, who sitt'st above these heavens, To us invisible, or dimly seen In these thy lowest works; yet these declare Thy goodness beyond thought, and power divine.
Page 188 - gainst that season comes Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated, The bird of dawning singeth all night long...
