A PROPHECY OF THE JUDGMENT DAY
Then if his breath can shake the same,
which is the God of might. How could he plague vs if he pleas'd
but with his force to smite.
The eight Prophesie for the yeere 1629.
14   The Infidels true God shall know,
and Trinity professe: God graunt which wee that Christians are,
may neuer doe the lesse: If those which doe not feare the Lord,
shall truest Christians turne. Then wee which know the liuing God,
in Hels hot flame shall burne.
The ninth Prophesie for the yeere 1630.
15   The Riuers shalbe dryed vp,
one Shepheard shall remaine, And but one Shepefold shall be left,
Gods glory to maintaine. Which is the latter day of all:
where but one God shall raigne, Then let vs labour day and night:
his fauour to obtaine.1
16   Great God which sit'st in heauely Throane
graunt that we sinners may, Haue place in thy eternall Court,
where holy Saints doe pray. Still holy, holy Lord of Lords
and Spirit full of grace, God graunt that in thy Kingdome wee,
may haue a resting place.
