Contents: A poore man now arrived at the Land of promise --
The multitudes of people covered the beautie of the fields --
He sat among graue, learned and reuerend men --
Faire and softly goeth far --
I am for the medium of all things --
The danger never dreamt of, that is the danger --
O lett me bosome thee, lett me preserve thee next to my heart --
We have twice and thrice so much scope for oure earthlie peregrination ... --
When we do luxuriate and grow riotous in the gallantnesse of this world --
True religion is in no way a gargalisme only --
The grace of the fashion of it --
Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut vp his tender mercies?
Responsibility: Adam Nicolson.
