RICHARD CRASHAW

1.

HEAR' ST thou, my foul, what ſerious things
Both the Pſalm and Sibyl ſings
Of a ſure Judge, from whoſe ſharp ray
The world in flames ſhall fly away!

2.

O that Fire! before whoſe face
Heaven and earth fhall find no place:
O thoſe Eyes! whoſe angry light
Muſt be the day of that dread night.

3.

O that Trump! whoſe blaſt ſhall run
An even round with th' circling Sun,
And urge the murmuring graves to bring
Pale mankind forth to meet his King.
