127
And as he was in the Spirit
On the Lord's blessed day, Our Saviour by an Angel spake,
And unto him did say,
Saint John, &c. I am Alpha and Omega,
Which was and is to come; And what thou seest write in a bookó
Thus said he to Saint Johnó And send it to the Churches then,
Which are in Asia seven. Thus said the Angel to Saint John,
Which came to him from Heaven.
Saint John, &c. Then John turn'd him about to see,
And was astonished At the sight of the Angel bright,
Who said, Be comforted, For I was alive, and also dead,
Now I live for evermore, And have the keys of death and hell;
Take comfort now therefore.
Saint John, &c. Then wretched Caesar, as 'tis said,
The Emperor Domitian, Into a tub of boiling oil
At Rome he thrust Saint John.
