Yet can a friend what thou hast done fulfill?

May 12, 2016

 


  When that my friend pretendeth to a place,
  I quit my interest, and leave it free:
           But when thy grace
    Sues for my heart, I thee displace;
  Nor would I use a friend, as I use Thee.

  Yet can a friend what thou hast done fulfill?
  O write in brass, My God upon a tree
           His bloud did spill,
    Onely to purchase my good-will:
  Yet use I not my foes, as I use thee.

"Unkindnesse"
