Then they accuse me of great blasphemie

March 16, 2016

 


  Then they accuse me of great blasphemie,
  That I did thrust into the Deitie,
  Who never thought that any robberie:
           Was ever grief like mine?

  Some said, that I the Temple to the floore
  In three days raz’d, and raised as before.
  Why, he that built the world can do much more:
           Was ever grief like mine?

  Then they condemne me all with that same breath,
  Which I do give them daily, unto death.
  Thus Adam my first breathing rendereth:
           Was ever grief like mine?
