Quotation by Edward Taylor

Oh! joyous hearts! enfired with holy flame!
Is speech thus tasseled with praise?
Will not your inward fire of joy contain:
That it in open flames doth blaze?
For in Christ's coach saints sweetly sing,
As they to glory ride therein.
Edward Taylor (1645–1729), U.S. poet. God's Determinations: The Joy of Church Fellowship Rightly Attended (l. 25–30). . .
