Hail holy Light, of spring of Heav’n first-born,
Or of th’ Eternal Coeternal beam
May I express thee unblam’d? since God is Light,

Whose Fountain who shall tell? - John Milton Attribution: John Milton (1608–1674), British poet. Paradise Lost (l. Bk. III, l. 1–8). . . The Complete Poetry of John Milton. John T. Shawcross, ed. (1963, rev. ed. 1971) Doubleday.
