The VII. Chapter of Job
XXXIX. William Samuel
 
GO on our dayes we doo on earth
  As shadowes, or as clouds,
And sudenly we leaue behinde
  Our emptie framed shrouds.
 
Both night and day they haue their toyl        5
  With work and dreames itost:
Wherefore, if God did not vs keep,
  So were we surely lost.
