`Tell me, some pitying angel` (1693) Z 196


Tell me some pitying angel,
Tell quickly, quickly say,
Where does my souls sweet darling stay,
In tigers or more cruel Herods way?
Ah, rather let his little footsteps press
Unregarded...
Tell me some pitying angel,
Tell quickly, quickly say,
Where does my souls sweet darling stay,
In tigers or more cruel Herods way?
Ah, rather let his little footsteps press
Unregarded through the wilderness,
Where milder savages resort,
The deserts safer than a tyrants court.
Why, fairest object of my love,
Why dost thou from my longing eyes remove?
Was it a waking dream that did fortell thy wondrous birth?
No vision from above?
Wheres Gabriel now that visited my cell?
I call: Gabriel! Gabriel!
He comes not.
Flattring hopes, farewell.
Me Judahs daughters once caressd,
Calld me of mothers the most blessd.
Now fatal change, of mothers most distressd.
How shall my soul its motions guide?
How shall I stem the various tide,
Whilst faith and doubt my labring soul divide?
For whilst of thy dear sight beguild,
I trust the God, but oh! I fear the child.
