Text

Love sits on his eyelids and scatters delight
Through all the bright mansions on high;
Their faces the cherubim veil in his sight,
And tremble in fullness of joy.

He looks, and ten thousands of angels rejoice,
And myriads wait on his word;
He speaks, and eternity, filled with his voice,
Re-echoes the praise of the Lord.
