HABAKKUK 3, 6, by            
First Line: When cushan was mourning in solitude drear
Last Line: And the lamp of the night stood still in the sky.


When Cushan was mourning in solitude drear,
When the curtains of Midian trembled with fear,
On the wings of salvation thy chariot did fly
Thou didst stride the wide whirlwind and come from on high.
Earth shook, and before thee the mountains did bow;
The voice of the deep thunder'd loud from below;
Thy arrows glanced bright as they shot thro' the air,
And far gleam'd the light of thy glittering spear;
The bright orb of day paus'd in wonder on high,
And the lamp of the night stood still in the sky.
