Edward Farr, ed.  Select Poetry of the Reign of Queen Elizabeth.  1845.
The XIX. Psalme
XXXIX. William Samuel
TO 1 the intent the mighty power
  Of God might well be waid,
The heauens and might of light aboue,
  By them he is displaid.
Besides all this, his sacred word,        5
  And law that is so pure,
He dooth set out as perfect guide
  To walke thereby ful sure.
Note 1. XXXIX. William Samuel.—In 1569 appeared a work entitled “An Abridgement of all the Canonical Books of the Olde Testament, written in Sternhold’s meter by W. Samuel, Minister.” Beyond this nothing is known of its author. [back]
