Text

Eternal excellence!
Thy worms would fain declare,
In thy divinest sense
How thou art heav'nly fair.
O Prince, Messiah, thou art seen
The fairest of the sons of men.

Man in his first estate,
Most wonderfully form'd,
With beauty's pow'rs replete,
With holiness adorn'd.
From ev'ry spot and blemish free,
Was but a figure, Lord, of thee.
