O what is man great Maker of mankind




Oh! what is man, great Maker of mankind!
That thou to him so great respect dost bear!
That thou adorn’st him with so bright a mind,
Mak’st him a king, and e’en an angel’s peer.


Oh, what a lively life, what heavenly power,
What spreading virtue, what a sparkling fire,
How great, how plentiful, how rich a dower
Dost thou within this dying flesh inspire.


Nor hast thou given these blessings for a day,
Nor made them on the body’s life depend:
The soul, though made in time, survives for aye;
And though it hath beginning, sees no end.
