At a Solemn Music

Blest pair of Sirens, pledges of Heav'n's joy,

Sphere-born harmonious Sisters, Voice and Verse,

Wed your divine sounds, and mixt power employ

Dead things with inbreath'd sense able to pierce,

And to our high-rais'd fantasy present

That undisturbed Song of pure concent,

Ay sung before that saphire-colour'd throne

To Him that sits thereon

With Saintly shout and solemn Jubilee,

Where the bright Seraphim in burning row

Their loud up-lifted Angel trumpets blow,

And the Cherubic host in thousand choirs

Touch their immortal Harps of golden wires,

With those just Spirits that wear victorious Palms,

Hymns devout and holy Psalms

Singing everlastingly;

That we on Earth with undiscording voice

May rightly answer that melodious noise;

As once we did, till disproportions sin

Jarr'd against Nature's chime, and with harsh din

Broke the fair music that all creatures made

To their great Lord, whose love their motion sway'd

In first obedience, and their state of good.

And keep in tune with Heav'n, till God ere long

To His celestial consort us unite,

To live with Him, and sing in endless morn of light.

John Milton
