1 Through shades and solitudes profound,
The fainting traveller winds his way;
Bewildering meteors glare around,
Ad tempt his wandering feet astray.
2 Welcome, thrice welcome, to his eye,
The sudden moon's inspiring light,
When forth she sallies through the sky,
The guardian angel of the night!
3 Thus mortals, blind and weak, below
Pursue the phantom bliss, in vain;
The world's a wilderness of wo,
And life a pilgrimage of pain!
4 Beyond the narrow vale of time,
Where bright celestial ages roll,
To scenes eternal, scenes sublime,
She points the way, and leads the soul.
5 At her approach the grave appears
The gate of Paradise restor'd;
Her voice the watching cherub hears,
And drops his double-flaming sword.
6 Baptiz'd with her renewing fire,
May we the crown of glory gain:
Rise when the hosts of heaven expire,
And reign with God, for ever reign!
