Arthur Quiller-Couch, ed. 1919. The Oxford Book of English Verse: 1250–1900.
Henry Rowe. 1750–1819
507. Sun
ANGEL, king of streaming morn; 
Cherub, call'd by Heav'n to shine; 
T' orient tread the waste forlorn; 
Guide ætherial, pow'r divine; 
    Thou, Lord of all within!         5
Golden spirit, lamp of day, 
Host, that dips in blood the plain, 
Bids the crimson'd mead be gay, 
Bids the green blood burst the vein; 
    Thou, Lord of all within!  10
Soul, that wraps the globe in light; 
Spirit, beckoning to arise; 
Drives the frowning brow of night, 
Glory bursting o'er the skies; 
    Thou, Lord of all within!  15
