filled the new-made world with light:

Text Information:

These few stanzas are among the least florid of the two dozen that make up the rather flamboyant paraphrase of Psalm 136 written by the 15-year-old who would become one of the greatest English poets. It is set here to a sprightly tune with Moravian connections.
