215 Thou king of terror! meager hound of hell! Thy dart be broken, harmless be thy sting! And all thy vassals vanish with their king! Then the elect sha'l enter that abode, Prepar'd for virtue by a bounteous God, The captain of salvation at their head, Under whose banner they have fought or bled. Where its bright guerdon shall receive its worth; Where as the sun the righteous shall shine forth; To whom in bliss eternal shall be given, 225 All the magnificent superb of Heav'n; Where the calm breast shall never heave a sigh, Nor ever tear shall trickle from the
eye; Where the sun's heat no more they shall deplore, Where thirst and hunger shall disturb no more; 2 30
Line 230. &c. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them nor any heat. For the l.au b which is in the midst of the Throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters; and God
But they shall be by their Redeemer fed,
shall.wipe away all tears from their eyes.” Revvii. 16 and 17.

And now, no more like mariner forlorn,
many waters, and as the voice of nighty thunderings, saying, Hallelujah; for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth ; let us he glad and rejoice, and give honour to him." Rev. xix. 6.
