THE CHECK, by                    
First Line: Troubled againe? Why surely thou
Last Line: Which gave them cause to fight, & strength to win.
Subject(s): Advice; God

TROUBLED againe? Why surely Thou
Art more rebellious now
Then those Thou greivest at, whilst thy
Unruly Will full against Gods doth flie.

And foole, what can thy greiving doe?
Will that torment thy foe?
Or what will it advantage Thee,
That Thou a Rebell gratis thus canst bee?

Wer't not more noble to make Thine
Owne will become Divine?
Say freely thus: Gods Will be done,
And then thou makest Thine & His all one.

So shalt Thou vex no more that they
Thine Enemies win ye Day:
But spend thy Greife on thine owne Sin,
Which gave them cause to fight, & strength to win.
