A song flung up to heaven pdf

With joy and love triumphing. A song flung up to heaven pdf poem concerns the Christian story of the fall of Satan and his brethren and the rise of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.

Things unattempted yet in Prose or Rhime. And justify the ways of God to men. Who durst defy th’ Omnipotent to arms. As far as angels’ ken. No light, but rather darkness visible. What though the field be lost? And courage never to submit or yield.

Restore us, and regain the blissful Seat. And out of good still to find means of evil. Created hugest that swim th’ Ocean stream. Where joy forever dwells: hail, horrors! A mind not to be changed by place or time. Can make a heav’n of hell, a hell of heav’n. See also Book IV, line 75.

Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven. Awake, arise, or be for ever fall’n. Can either sex assume, or both. Of Belial, flown with insolence and wine. Shone like a meteor, streaming to the wind. Frighted the reign of Chaos and old Night.

Of flutes and soft recorders. Tears, such as angels weep, burst forth. Self-raised, and repossess their native seat? By force, hath overcome but half his foe. Dropped from the zenith like a falling star. That fought in heaven, now fiercer by despair.
