Noahs Flood (excerpts)

by
 Eternal and all-working God, which wast
Before the world, whose frame by Thee was cast,
And beautified with beamful lamps above,
By thy great wisdom set how they should move
To guide the seasons, equally to all,
Which come and go as they do rise and fall.
My mighty Maker, O do thou infuse Such life and spirit into my labouring Muse, That I may sing (what but from Noah thou hid'st) The greatest thing that ever yet thou didst Since the creation; that the world may see The Muse is heavenly and deriv'd from Thee.
O let Thy glorious Angel which since kept That gorgeous Eden, where once Adam slept, When tempting Eve was taken from his side, Let him great God not only be my guide, But with his fiery faucheon still be nie, To keep affliction far from me, that I With a free soul thy wondrous works may show, Then like that deluge shall my numbers flow, Telling the state wherein the earth then stood, The giant race, the universal flood.
