Sida 108 - But, first and chiefest, with thee bring Him that yon soars on golden wing, Guiding the fiery-wheeled throne, The Cherub Contemplation; And the mute Silence hist along, 'Less Philomel will deign a song...
Sida 11 - Let us not break in upon him. O change beyond report, thought, or belief!
