Go, happy soul, and in the seats above,
Sing endless hymns of thy great maker's love.
How fit, in heavenly songs to bear thy part,
Before well practised in the sacred art.

Whilst hearing us sometimes the choir divine
Will sure descend, and in our concert join:
So much the music thou to us hast given,
Has made our earth to represent their heaven.
