Let God arise in majesty And scattered be his foes. Yea, flee they all his sight in face, To him which hateful goes. As smoke is driv'n and com'th to naught, Repulse their tyranny. At face of fire, as wax doth melt, God's face the bad must fly.
- by Matthew Parker, Archbishop (1504 - 1575), first published 1567 [an adaptation] [author's text not yet checked against a primary source]
