As onel in days of old, would To some protecting s?rine From dread pursuers, threat'ning nigh, And, panting, there recline, Lord, to thy dwelling I repair, And cling around thine altar there ! Or, as the swallow, chased' away From cruel' man's abode, Beneath thy sacred ?alls Will lay' Her cherish'd young, oh God ! So there ! oft that peace obtain, Which elsewhere I have sought:in vain. When shelter'd safe, we!l-pleased we hear The waves and tempest roar, And raging winds without endear The warmth within still more; Oh, thus I feel, from peril free, Retired within thy sanctuary. ......... ?Google
