The secret of the Lord is set with him
That wonders at His majesty: his praise
Wells from no trembler’s misery: his hymn
Swells the exultant day’s.
His psalm wings upward, and reflected down
Even in Hell makes music and renown.

I lie down at the feet of the prostitute.

She stands on the altar, rejoicing thereon,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!
