60                     FABER'S HYMNS.
Jesus ! ten silent days expired, The Eternal Spirit came, and fired
With His celestial heat Thine infant Church; oh may that light Within one pasture now unite
Men's widely wandering feet.
Jesus ! who at this very hour
At God's Right Hand in pomp and power
Our natures still dost wear, Oh let Thy wounds still intercede, And by their simple silence plead
Thy countless merits there.
Jesus ! who shalt in glory come With angels to the final doom,
Men's works and wills to weigh, Since from that pomp I cannot flee, Be pitiful, great Lord! to me
In that tremendous day.
O Creator ! hear Thy creatures, Saviour! hear us when we pray; Thou who dost renew our natures, Good Spirit! give us hearts to say., Deus meus et omnia !
Rome, Villa StrozzI,
Eve of St. Barnabas, 1843.
