Enoch who did convers with God
Stood on the mount and stretchd abroad
His soul wide as eternity
He rent the vail and wonders see
 
With mighty faith he did expand
O’er earth and heaven o’er sea and land
Till things above and things below
He did behold yea did them know
 
His heart he turn’d to notes above
His soul o’erwhelm’d with boundless love
He sang a song in heav’nly lays
While angels tongues join’d him in praise
 
With finger end God touch’d his eyes
That he might gaze within the skies [p. [168]]
