Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 12. An vprightly zealous, and truly devout man is strong enough against all temptations


THat man, in whom the grace of God begins,
His soule with divine comfort to refresh,
May the whole heptarchie of deadly sins,
In spight of all, the Devill, the World, the flesh
Are able to suggest, enforce to yeeld;
Christ, being his guide: and Christian faith, his shield.
