Mortales erecti sint spe.

Summe Deus! miserator,
Da pugnanti gratiam.

And God said " Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and let the fowl fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”

AIR,

On mighty plumes to dazzling height,

The eagle springs :
And towards the flaming orb of light,
Pursues his swift his dauntless flight:

The lark at morn his sprightly welcome sings.
The turtle cooing, wooes his feather'd love:
In ev'ry blush, in ev'ry grove,
The nightingale's sweet notes resound;
No grief has learnt her breast to wound,
Nor taught her a sad song to raise,

From such enchanting lays.

GRAND CHORUS.RIGHINI

quoniam tu solus sanotus, tu solus Dominus, tu solus altissimus Jesu Christe. Cum sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris, Amen.

While Rage his leader, and Jehovah mine.

And call the brave, and only brave, around.

And follow thee to conquest ;-If to fall;
For laws, religion, liberty, we fall.

LUTHER'S HYMN.

MADAME CATALANI.

GREAT GOD WHAT DO I SEE AND HEAR!
The end of things created !
The Judge of mankind does appear,
On clouds of glory seated.
The trumpet sounds, the graves restore
The dead that they contain'd before ;
Prepare, my soul, to meet him.

CHORUS.-Samson.-HANDEL.

Fix'd in his everlasting seat,

Jehovah rules the world in state ; His thunders roar, heav'n shakes, and earth's aghast; ;

The stars with deep amaze,

Remain in steadfast gaze: Jehovah is of Gods the first and last.
