Text heard on Sample:
Sweet Infancy!
O Hevenly Fire! O Sacred Light!
How Fair and bright!
How Great am I
Whom the whol World doth magnify!

O hevenly Joy!
O Great and Sacred Blessedness
Which I possess!
So great a Joy
Who did into my Arms convey?

From God abov
Being sent the Gift doth me enflame
To prais his Name;
The Stars do mov, The Sun doth shine,
to shew his Lov.

O how Divine
Am I! To all this sacred Wealth,
This Life and Health,
Who rais'd? Who mine
Did make the same! What hand divine!

Thomas Traherne
