Abstain wholly, or wed

March 19, 2016

 

Abstain wholly, or wed. Thy bounteous Lord

Allows thee choise of paths: take no by-wayes;

But gladly welcome what he doth afford;

Not grudging, that thy lust hath bounds and staies.

Continence hath his joy: weigh both;

and so If rottennesse have more, let Heaven go.
