And 'scvtcheons to deck their herse,

And yet all ioyntly less then the.

Pvrchas'd by rapine worse than stealth,
Nor did'st thov brooding o'er it sit.

This men may blvsh at when they see,
What thy deeds were, what theirs shovld be.

Which if my Jesus grant like thine,
Who wets my grave's noe friend of mine.
