The golden sun, in splendor likest heav'n,
  Dispenses light from far; they, as they move
    Their starry dance, in numbers that compute
      Days, months, and years, towards his all-cheering lamp,
        Turn swift their various motions, or are turn'd
          By his magnetic beam, that gently warms
            The universe; and to each inward part,
              With gentle penetration, though unseen,
                Shoots invisible virtue ev'n to the deep.
      - [Sun]

      - [Intemperance]

The redundant locks, robustious to no purpose, clustering down--vast monument of strength.
      - [Hair]

The sacred influence of light appears.
      - [Light]

The Saviour who flitted before the patriarchs through the fog of the old dispensation, and who spake in time past to the fathers by the prophets, articulate but unseen, is the same Saviour who, on the open heights of the Gospel, and in the abundant daylight of this New Testament, speaks to us. Still all along it is the same Jesus, and that Bible is from beginning to end all of it, the word of Christ.
      - [Bible]

The silver-footed queen.
      - [Moon]

The spirit of man, which God inspired, cannot together perish with this corporeal clod.

The sun, declined, was hastening now with prone career to the ocean isles, and in the ascending scale of heaven the stars that usher evening rose.
