So great a Joy Who did into my Arms convey? From God abov Being sent, the Gift doth me enflame To prais his Name; The Stars do mov, The Sun doth shine, to shew his Lov. O how Divine Am I! To all this Sacred Wealth, This Life and Health, Who rais'd? Who mine Did make the same! What hand divine! * * * * * Sweet Infancy! O fire of heaven!
