MURTHER UNMASKED
Yet still he keepes the same From blemish, hurt, or blame, And brings them all to shame that fight against it.
3   What strange coplots haue bin
gainst the truth, gainst ye truth, Throughout the world is seene1
t' haue beene attempted: Yet Christ his church wil haue, And his Professors saue, In spite of Pope, or slaue
that would confound it.
4   Approued this may be
at this time, at this time, By Barnviles trecherie
gainst the Low-countries: Who with vain hopes mis-led, Deuis'd t' haue strucke all dead, And to haue murthered
men, wiues, and children.
5   He did consult with Hell
impiously, impiously, Their frontier townes to sell
to Austria's Duke: To murther great and small, With th' English souldiers all, That slept within the wall
of euery Citie.
6   Yet here he did not stay,
but conspir'd, but conspir'd Graue Maurice for to slay, with other Princes.
