A Paraphrase.
For the Journal.—Isaiah chapt. LX.
Arise O Zion fair and lift thine eyes,
Exalt thy lofty towers towards the skies;
See the resplendant glory round thee spread,
Fill all thy courts and rest upon thy head.
See Gentiles from the distant nations too,
Come to thy light, and in thy temple bow;
See numerous kings and princes from afar,
Cast down their crowns, and in thy glories share!
Behold thy sons shall come in flooks as clouds
Around thine alters bow, in shining crowds,
Rejoice in God that he doth now unfold;
His hidden treasures, as in days of old. [p. 31]
