NUMBER:217
AUTHOR:Thomas Sternhold (c. 1549)
QUOTATION:The Lord descended from above
  And bow’d the heavens high;
And underneath his feet he cast
  The darkness of the sky.


On cherubs and on cherubims
  Full royally he rode;
And on the wings of all the winds
  Came flying all abroad.
ATTRIBUTION:A Metrical Version of Psalm civ.
