First Line: Thou hast no faith of him that hath none
Last Line: Thou hast no faith.
Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Variant Title(s): Egerton Manuscript: 19
Subject(s): Faith; Belief; Creed

Thou hast no faith of him that hath none,
But thou must love him needs by reason,
For as sayeth a proverb notable,
Each thing seeketh his semblable,
And thou hast thine of thy condition.
Yet is it not the thing I pass on;
Nor hot nor cold is mine affection,
For since thine heart is so mutable,
Thou hast no faith.

I thought thee true without exception,
But I perceive I lacked discretion
To fashion faith to words mutable;
Thy thought is too light and variable,
To change so oft without occasion,
Thou hast no faith.
