MURTHER UNMASKED
Thus midst this bloodie broyle, He would haue made a spoyle Of his owne natiue soyle, without all pittie.
7   This Tyger fierce of mind,
mercilesse, mercilesse, these townes wold haue resignd
to Tyrants power: Who would haue banisht there The Gospel shining cleare, And in its stead vpreare
trash and Traditions.
8   But this discouer'd was
wondrously, wondrously: And nothing brought to passe
what he intended: For God did from the skie, Cast downe his watchfull eye, His treasons to descrie,
and crosse his purpose.
9    NOw are his Treasons knowne to his shame, to his shame: And to all Statesmen showne,
for their example: That God pursues his foes, With heauie ouerthrowes, Who doe their Hate disclose
gainst Gospellizing.
io What sauage Monster would
thus haue slain, thus haue slain His friends; and Country sold for filthy lucre:
