Lyrics: Ossian (James MacPherson)

Thou who rollest in the firmament, round as the shield of my fathers,
whence is thy girdle of glory, O sun, anf thy light everlasting?
Forth thou comest in thy awful beauty; the stars at thy rising haste to their azure pavilions;
The moon sinks pale in the waters, but thou movest alone.
Who dareth to wander beside thee? Oaks of the mountain decay and the hard rock crumbles asunder;
ocean shrinks and grows again; lost is the moon in the heavens;
whilst thou remainest the same, to rejoice in thy brightness.
Although laden with storms be the wind, loud thunders be rolling;
though lightnings be glaring around, thou lookest from the clouds in thy beauty,
laughing at the storm.

Legh Richmond
(1772 - 1827)
