TRINITIE SUNDAY (FOR A BASE AND TWO TREBLES), by            
First Line: Fond syllogismes, in vaine / you arme your propositions three
Last Line: (chorus) thrice holie holie holie trinitie.
Subject(s): Christianity; Trinity, The


FOND Syllogismes, in vaine
You arme your Propositions Three
Against Religious Trinitie.
Alas, what need you straine
To run so mad with Reason, & excell
In wrangling all your Masters into Hell.

Must Faith & Heavn goe learne
Reason of Arius? Must ye Son
Be God no longer then Art can
The Mysterie discerne,
And by pure Demonstration teach ye Eye
How th' Angles in the Eternall TRIGON lie?

Fooles, we would not maintaine
Our ONE in THREE, & THREE in ONE,
If your best Demonstration
Could wisely it explaine.
No: Tis a Mysterie, & shall ever quell
Both Arius, & all other Gates of Hell.

Come Faithfull Hearts & sing:
All Saints & Angells will conspire
To fix ye Consort of your Quire:
They know your Mystik King:
And in their everlasting Anthems crie
(Chorus) Thrice HOLIE HOLIE HOLIE TRINITIE.
