The Stater giving Fish
Richard Crashaw (G.) (c. 1613–1649)
 
MATT. XVII. 27.

A FISH thou wishest, Lord;
And without e’er a word,
Behold, it swims to Thee,
Fetching its own cost, free.
Thou needest not to go        5
In markets to and fro;
Nor need’st Thou price to bring,
The fish owns Thee its King.
