Lord Jesus, with what sweetness and delights. H. Vaughan. [Ascension.] This poem of 62 lines on Ascension day appeared in the second part of his Silex Scintillans; or Sacred Poems, &c, 1655, and again in the Rev. H. F. Lyte's reprint, 1846 (1858 ed., p. 133). Upon the first four lines of the poem the Rev. T. Darling based his Ascension hymn, "Lord Jesus, taken from Thy servants' sight," and published the same in the 1856 edition of his Hymns for the Church of England. It is continued in later editions.
