							Night the {Fourth} Third
							Now sat the King of Light on high upon his starry throne
							And bright Ahania bow’d herself before his splendid feet
							O Urizen look on Me. {thy Wife, that} like a mournful stream
							I Embrace{s} round thy knees & wet{s her} My bright hair with {her} my tears:
							Why sighs my Lord! are not the morning stars thy obedient Sons
							Do they not bow their bright heads at thy voice? at thy command
							Do they not fly into their stations & return their light to thee
							The immortal Atmospheres are thine, there thou art seen in glory
							Surrounded by the ever changing Daughters of the Light
							{Thou sitst in harmony for God hath set thee over all}
							Why wilt thou look upon futurity darkning present joy
							She ceas’d the Prince his light obscurd & the splendors of his crown
