I do not seeke to feede their fickle braine, In filed phraze, that set there sole delight, Nor how to descant braue on things most vaine,
That Christ Suffered In His Soule
If Saloman the wisest King, That euer raigned on this earth, Could not describe the fearefull sting, Of wounded conscience during breath.
Mankinds lamentation, Of their miserable condition, By naturall corruption, Through Adams inclination,

He that is poore in spirite and in mynde, and rightly deemes his vertues to be small. He that in his soule no goodnes can finde,

Infallible Tokens Of Predestation Vnto Saluation.
He that doth looke to raigne with Christ,
In euerlasting blessednesse,
Must take great care that he persist,
In these degrees of holinesse.
The first, He must lament his sin,
Whereby he hath offended God,
And seeke to come no more therein,
Least he correct him with his rod,
The second, He must loue Gods house,
To learne his dutie willingly,
And thither often take his course,
To worship God vnfainedly.
The third, He must set his delight,
To heare and read Gods holy word,
And often meditate on it,
His goodnesse daily to record.
