When sun doth rise the stars do set

When sun doth rise the stars do set

Representative Text

1 When sun doth rise the stars do set,
Yet there's no need of light:
God shines a sun most glorious,
When creatures all are night.

2 The very Indian boys can give
To many stars their name,
And know their course and therein do
Excel the English tame.

3 English and Indians, none enquire
Whose hand these candles hold,
Who gives these stars their names
More bright ten thousand fold.
