CHORUS IN EDIPUS TYRANNUS.
May the Divine Providence assist us to guard inviolate the awful sanctity of every word and deed, concerning which laws of a lofty clime are established ; laws born in the ethereal sky, Heaven alone being their author ; nor did ever mortal nature beget them, nor will ever oblivion lull them to sleep. In these God is great, nor ever decays or changes.
