First Line: What god gives, and what we take
Last Line: Make it ever flourishing.
Subject(s): Grace

What God gives, and what we take,
'Tis a gift for Christ His sake:
Be the meale of Beanes and Pease,
God be thank'd for those, and these.
Have we flesh, or have we fish.
All are Fragments from His dish.
He His Church save, and the King,
And our Peace here, like a Spring,
Make it ever flourishing.
