At A Solemn Music Comments

Rating: 2.7

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,

Descriptive beauty of his erudition in display, John Milton the great poet of 17 century says about the song with music how can one be at peace and joy at the disposal of God in a wonderful manner none do so!

There are two lines missing. The last eight lines should read: Broke the fair musick that all creatures made To their great Lord, whose love their motion sway'd In perfect diapason, whilst they stood In first obedience and their state of good. O may we soon again renew that song, And keep in tune with heaven, till God ere long To His celestial concert us unite, To live with Him, and sing in endless morn of light!
