First the weathercock begins to flash- then a fainter lustre gives the spire an airy aspect- next it encroaches on the tower and causes the index of the dial to glisten like gold as it points to the gilded figure of the hour.

Now the loftiest window gleams, and now the lower. The carved framework of the portal is marked strongly out. At length the morning glory in its descent from heaven comes down the stone steps one by one, and there stands the steeple glowing with fresh radiance, while the shades of twilight still hide themselves among the nooks of the adjacent buildings.

Methinks though the same sun brightens it every fair morning, yet the steeple has a peculiar robe of brightness for the Sabbath.
