Impartial, and yet yielding, she's peaceable and pure;
With mercy, no sentimental feeling; she is very sure.
She was there at Creation, and heard the angels' song.
Stands with the Lord at each salvation, makes the saved strong.
With the Lord's joy, she dances b'fore His throne,
He delights in her, and calls her His own;
With Him, she ushered in Time, and will lead Time out;
She desires to be our mind's design, pleading with a shout.
Her rebuke is love and kindness, echoing to the end;
She calls at the highways, seeking souls to send;
She is justified by her children, so said the Wise One,
Seek her as a pilgrim, and become her son.
