Extol in various languages the Lord
Who has come near to us in all our need
And in His Father's throne will intercede.
Persons once alienated, who abhorred
The words of God, and consequently warred
Against His preachers and His truth are freed
From follies that idolatry decreed
To join words to His glory in one chord.

For I love words, and love to play on them:
But since I am fantastic and absurd
My words require subjection to the Word;
Since He is the Beginning and the End
For wordsmith who serve His Jerusalem
There is in love a sweetnesse readie penn'd.
