COMMENDATION OF PORTERS
1    'THrise blessed is that Land
A where King and Rulers bee, and men of great Command that carefull are to see, that carefull are to see, the Commons good mantainde by friendly vnitie, the proppe of any land.
2        Then blessed is this Land
by our dread soueraignes raigne,
whose prudence in command,
doth all estates maintaine:
[his helpe]1 to comfort all
is vnto all extended:
rich, poore, both great and small,
are by his care defended.
