On The Reverend Mr. Hunter, Who Received A Degree From The University Of Oxford - Poem by Hannah More

Go, happy spirit, seek that blissful land
Where zealous Michael leads the glorious band
Of those who fought for truth; blest spirit, go,
And perfect all the good begun below;
Go hear applauding Saints, delighted, tell
How vanquish'd Falsehood, at thy bidding, fell!
Blest in that heav'n whose paths thy virtue sought;
Blest in that God whose cause thou well hast fought;
O let thy honour'd shade
his
care approve,
Who this memorial rears of filial love:
A son, whose father, living, was his pride;
A son, who mourns that such a father died.
