The Prayer of the Sons of Zebedee
Richard Crashaw (C.) (c. 1613–1649)
MATT. XX. 20.

O BROTHERS twain, may it be yours to fill
At right and left your places as you will!
A seat remains, I trust—a fair one too—
Besides those high ones that were sought for you.
I pray not that to me some part be given,        5
But heaven itself, kind Father, grant me heaven.
