O thou, that sit'st upon a throne,
With harp of high majestic tone,
     To praise the King of Kings;
And voice of heaven-ascending swell,
Which, while its deeper notes excel,
     Clear, as a clarion, rings.

-- Christopher Smart
from The Song to David
(in Poetry for the Spirit, edited by Alan Jacobs)
