THE LITANY: 18, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Deliver us for thy descent
Last Line: Deliver, and make us, to both waies free.


Deliver us for thy descent
Into the Virgin, whose wombe was a place
Of middle kind; and thou being sent
To'ungratious us, staid'st at her full of grace;
And through thy poore birth, where first thou
Glorifiedst Povertie,
And yet soone after riches didst allow,
By accepting Kings gifts in the Epiphanie,
Deliver, and make us, to both waies free.
