Page 723 - Give me my scallop-shell of quiet, My staff of faith to walk upon. My scrip of joy, immortal diet, My bottle of salvation, My gown of glory, hope's true gage; And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.
Page 708 - The flowers do fade, and wanton fields, To wayward winter reckoning yields, A honey tongue, a heart of gall, Is fancy's spring, but sorrow's fall. Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of roses, Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posies, Soon break, soon wither, soon forgotten: In folly ripe, in reason rotten.
Page 726 - Tell arts they have no soundness, But vary by esteeming, Tell schools they want profoundness, And stand too much on seeming. If arts and schools reply, Give arts and schools the lie. Tell faith it 's fled the city, Tell how the country erreth, Tell, manhood shakes off pity, Tell, virtue least preferreth, And if they do reply, Spare not to give the lie.
Page 589 - The good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth that which is evil : for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Page 573 - magnify the Lord, and my spirit rejoiceth in God
Page 708 - IF all the world and love were young, And truth in every shepherd's tongue, These pretty pleasures might me move To live with thee and be thy love.
Page 727 - Go, tell the Church it shows What's good and doth no good ; If Church and Court reply, Then give them both the lie. Tell potentates they live, Acting by others' actions, Not loved unless they give, Not strong but by their factions ; If potentates reply, Give potentates the lie.
Page 725 - Fear not to touch the best; The truth shall be thy warrant Go, since I needs must die, And give the world the lie. Say to the court, it glows, And shines like rotten wood; Say to the church, it shows What's good, and doth no good. If church and court reply, Then give them both the lie. Tell potentates they live Acting by others' action; Not loved unless they give, Not strong but by a faction.
Page 724 - That, since my flesh must die so soon, And want a head to dine next noon, Just at the stroke, when my veins start and spread, Set on my soul an everlasting head!
Page 707 - And thou, my soul, inspired with holy flame, View and review with most regardful eye That holy cross whence thy salvation came, On which thy Saviour and thy sin did die.
