PARADISE REGAIN'D.

BOOK I.

WHO ere while the happy Garten surg,
By one Man's Disobedience loft, now diig
Recover'd Paradise to all Mankind,
By one Man's firm Obedience fully try'd
Through all temptation, and the Tempter
foil'd

5 In all his wiles, defeated and repulsid, And Eden rais'd in the waste Wilderness.

[ocr errors]

Thou, Spirit, who ledst this glorious Eremite
Into the Desart, his victorious Field
Against the spiritual Foe, and brought'st him thence
By proof th' undoubted Son of God, inspire,
As thou art wont, my prompted Song, elle mute,
And bear through height or depth of Nature's bounds
With prosperous wing full summ’d, to tell of deeds
Above Heroick, though in secret done,
And unrecorded left through many an Age,
Worthy t'have not remain'd so long unsung.
