(CHRISTIAN, DEATH)

CHR. ALAS, poore Death! where is thy glorie?
Where is thy famous force, thy ancient sting?
DEA. Alas, poore mortall, void of storie!
Go, spell, and reade how I have kill'd thy King.
CHR. Poore Death! and who was hurt thereby?
Thy curse, being laid on him, makes thee accurst.
DEA. Let losers talk, yet thou shalt die:
These arms shall crush thee.
CHR. Spare not, do thy worst.
I shall be one day better then before;
Thou so much worse, that thou shalt be no more.
