Nor earth alone his power confines,
Above the heav'n his glory fhines.
Who then shall plume himfelf, and dare
With this Almighty Lord compare;
Who dwells, who reigns all heights above,
Yet condescends, with grace and love,
To view the scenes of heav'n and earth;
To raise the man of humble birth
From low eftate, and line obfcure,
To dwell with kings in pomp and pow'r
He makes the barren woman bear;
Her offspring nurfe with tendereft care;
That, long to her request denied,
At length her joyful cares divide.
