Let coward guilt, with pallid fear

Let coward guilt, with pallid fear

Representative Text

1 Let coward guilt, with pallid fear,
To shelt'ring caverns fly;
And justly dread the vengeful fate,
Which thunders through the sky:

2 Protected by that hand, whose law
The threat'ning storms obey,
Intrepid virtue smiles secure,
As in the blaze of day.

3 In the thick cloud's tremendous gloom,
The lightning's horrid glare,
It views the same all-gracious pow'r
Which breathes the vernal air.

4 Through nature's ever-varying scene.
By diff'rent ways pursu'd,
The one eternal end of heav'n
Is universal good.

5 When, though creation's vast expanse,
The last dread thunders roll,
Untune the concord of the spheres,
And shake the guilty soul:

6 Unmov'd may we the final storm
Of jarring worlds survey,
That ushers in the tranquil morn
Of an eternal day.
