Uriel

“Regent of the Sun,” and “sharpest-sighted spirit of all in heaven.” (Milton: Paradise Lost, iii. 690.) Longfellow, in the Golden Legend, makes Raphael the angel of the Sun, and Uriel the minister of Mars. (See Raphael.)

I am the minister of Mars.
The strongest star among the stars.
My songs of power prelude
The march and battle of man's life.
And for the suffering and the strife
I give him fortitude.

The Miracle Ploy, iii.
