JESU, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Jesu is in my heart, his sacred name
Last Line: And to my whole is jesu.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ; Religion; Theology

JESU is in my heart, his sacred name
Is deeply carved there. But th' other week
A great affliction broke the little frame,
Ev'n all to pieces; which I went to seek:
And first I found the corner where was J,
After, where ES, and next where U, was graved.
When I had got these parcels, instantly
I sat me down to spell them, and perceived
That to my broken heart he was I ease you,
And to my whole is JESU.
