O Mightie God, which hast created the heauens, and all the beautifull ornaments of the same, roiallie to set vp thy glorie, & to declare eueri∣where all the wonderfull works of thy hands, wrought through thy sonne Iesus Christ; whome as the bright shining Sunne of righte∣ousnesse and vnderstanding, thou hast assigned to haue his residence in those heauens. Suffer I beseech thee, that by the beames of his grace and beneuolence, Page  369 most louinglie shining and spread abroad, he may cast his light into the world, and kindle in the harts of men a feruour of spirit. Let him come foorth as a bride∣groome from his chamber; yea, let him appeare cou∣ragious as a valiant champion, to run through his course and iournie, euen till he haue conducted vs vnto the highest heauens, and holie citie Ierusalem, where shall be no need either of sunne or moone to shine, and where we shall walke with those that are saued in the light of the Lambe, and glorie of God,

They that loue the Lord shall be as the sunne, when he ariseth in his might.
