Happy he whose inward ear

Sublime embassadors from soul to soul!
Angel comfortings can hear,

By thee Hope sends her passport-Hate defies-
O'er the rabble's laughter;
Genius a flood ethereal bids roll,

And Love speaks what the treacherous tongue
Glimpses through the smoke discern
Of the good hereafter.
