Psalme CXXXI
VI. Sir Philip Sidney and the Countess of Pembroke
Domine, non est.

  A LOFTY hart, a lifted eye,
Lord, thou dost know I never bare:
  Lesse have I borne in things to hygh
A medling mind or clyming care.
Looke how the wained babe doth fare,        5
  O did I not? yes, soe did I:
None more for quiet might compare
  Ev’n with the babe that wain’d doth lye.
Heare then and learne, O Jacob’s race,
Such endlesse trust on God to place.        10
