Lo! Faith serene, on seraph car,

The golden gates of bliss anbar,
Amid the countless globes of day, And through the pearly portals ride!
Proud Science, radiant to the view,
Rang'd the wide spheres and solar way. Thence, where Jehovah sits enthron'd,

Amidst his own Shechina's flame,
Her temples wore a mystic wreath,

Let the world's startiog pillars fall, Thron'd on Day's cherub car I ride,

Let Nature fly her fix'd abode ; And govern with my sov'reign word

Science must sink; but Faith thro' ally, The rolling stars, with all their pride,

With tranquil eye, shall hail her God? Night's royal Queen, Day's orieut
