PSALM 73: INTRODUCTORY LINES, by            
First Line: The sudden storms that heave me to and fro
Last Line: Such goodly light king david giveth me.
Variant Title(s): The Noble Voyage
Subject(s): Faith; Belief; Creed


The sudden storms that heave me to and for
Had well-near pierced faith, my guiding sail,
For I, that on the noble voyage go
To succor truth and falsehood to assail,
Constrained am to bear my sails full low
And never could attain some pleasant gale,
For unto such the prosperous winds do blow
As run from port to port to seek avail.
This bred despair, whereof such doubts did grow
That I gan faint, and all my courage fail.
But now, my Blage, mine error well I see:
Such goodly light King David giveth me.
