Page 69 - A bundle of myrrh is my wellbeloved unto me; he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts. My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of En-gedi.
Page 23 - Ierusalem, if ye my loue doo see, Tell him that I am sicke for loue, yea, tel him this from me. Thou peerelesse gem of price, I pray thee to vs tell What is thy loue, what may he be that doth so far excell ? In my beloueds face the rose and lilly striue ; Among ten thousand men not one is found so faire aliue: His head like finest gold, with secret sweet perfume ; His curled locks hang all as black as any rauens plume ; His eies be like to doues on riuers banks below, Ywasht with milk, whose collours...
Page 4 - Songes of praise, so exactly translated as the prose would permit, or sence would any way suffer me: which (if thou shalt be the same in hart thou art in name, I mean, a Christian) I doubt not but thou wilt take as great delight in these as in any poetical fiction: I speak not of Mars the god of wars, nor of Venus the goddesse of...
Page 62 - Who may withstand that liveth in Thy sight, If Thou Thy chosen Israel wilt save ? For Thou hast made the earth and heaven above, And all things else that in the same do move. Thou madest all things, and they are all Thine own, And there is none that may resist Thy will : Thou know'st all things, and this of Thee is known, I did not erst for malice nor for ill...
Page 41 - That thou earnest forth in chariot hot as fire ? Thy force and power thou freely didst relate ; Vnto the tribes thy oath doth surely stand ; And by thy strength thou didst deuide the land, And from the earth the riuers seperate. The mountaines saw, and trembled for feare ; The sturdy streame with speed foorth passed by ; The mightv depthes shout out a hideous crie, And then aloft their waues they did vpreare. The sun and moon amid their course stood still ; Thy speares and arrowes forth with shining...
Page 3 - Ladishippe, and in my loue towardes you most vnwilling to bee founde ingratefull, either in the behalfe of my countrie, or the place of my byrth, to the one your godlie life beeing a president of perfect vertue, to the other your bountifull hospitalitie an exceeding releefe : Then, good Ladie, my selfe, as an admyrer of your manie vertues, and a well-wisher vnto your happie and desired estate, doo here present the fruites of my labours vnto your modest and discreet consideration ; hoping that you...
Page 29 - In al his people's sight. I wil reioice in their despight Which erst haue me abhord, Because that my saluation Dependeth on the Lord. None is so holie as the Lord; Besides thee none there are ; With our God there is no God That may himselfe compare. See that no more presumptuously Ye neither boast nor vaunt, Nor yet vnseemly speak such things So proud and arrogant. For why ? the counsell of the Lord In depth cannot be sought: Our enterprises and our actes By him to passe are brought. The bowe is...
Page 19 - Jewishdaughters, not to call my loue till she doe wake. "Who's that which doth from wildernes in mighty smoke appeare, Like the perfumes of odors sweet which merchants hold so dear ? About the bed of Salomon, behold, there is a band Of threescore valiant Israelites which al in armour stand; All expert men of war, with sword stil ready prest, Least foes in night time should approch, when men suspect them least.
Page 40 - One from Paran mount so hie ! His glorie hath cleane couered the skie, And in the earth his praises be inrolde. His shining was more clearer than the light; And from his hands a fulnesse did proceed, Which did contain his wrath and power indeed ; Consuming plagues and fire were in his sight. He stood aloft and compassed the land, And of the nations doth defusion make; The mountains rent, the hilles for feare did quake...
