Hail, holy light! offspring of heaven firstborn!
  Or of th' eternal co-eternal beam,

  Seasons return, but not to me returns
    Day, or the sweet approach of even or morn,
      Or sight of vernal bloom, or summer's rose,
        Or flocks, or herds, or human face divine;
          But cloud instead, and ever-during dark
            Surrounds me, from the cheerful ways of men
              Cut off, and for the book of knowledge fair
                Presented with a universal blank
                  Of Nature's works to me expunged and rased,
                    And wisdom at one entrance quite shut out.

  In which of all these shining orbs hath man
    His fixed seat, or fixed seat hath none,
