PÓgina 243 - Father, you are an aged man ; Your head is white, your bearde is gray ; It were a shame at these your yeares For you to ryse in such a fray.
PÓgina 80 - His Saviour came not with a gaudy show; Nor was his kingdom of the world below. Patience in want, and poverty of mind, These marks of Church and Churchmen he design'd, And living taught, and dying left behind.
PÓgina 242 - Gramercy, Christopher, my sonne, Thy counsell well it liketh mee ; And if we speed and scape with life. Well advanced shalt thou bee.
