Within that awful volume lies
The mystery of mysteries!
Happiest they of human race,
To whom God has granted grace
To read, to fear, to hope, to pray,
To lift the latch, and force the way:

Then let the good Thy mighty name revere,
And hardened sinners Thy just vengeance fear.

Do you desire not to be angry? Be not inquisitive. He who
