A DREAM OF A SINNER
12   Then Sathan sorrowed much
at that same sudden sight. And said vnto the Lord,
thy Iudgements are not right.
13   And thus our Sauiour sweet
said to him by and by, Thou, Sathan, know'st full well that I for sinne did dye.
14   Redeeming all the world,
once ouerthrowne by thee, And so will saue all such as truly trust in mee.
15   My mortall foe was wroth,
that he had lost his prey, Extreamely vexed was, and vanisht quite away.
16   But I that thus was bill'd
within that blessed booke, Out of my slumbring sleepe so ioyfully awoke.
17   Still praying to the Lord,
that alwayes sinners may From Sathan be set free, at the last dreadfull day.
18   That after earthly toyles,
we may heauen ioyes attaine, Here learne to Hue to dye, that we may Hue againe.
19   Our noble royall King,
God grant him long to raigne, To Hue in ioy and peace, the Gospell to maintaine.
London Printed for E. Wright. I78
