Five senses do in every man maintain
A governing of power, rule and reign ;
The hearing, seeing, tasting, feeling, smelling,
Which at thy death will leave thee and thy dwelling.
Six days, O man, thou hast to labor in, So merciful and good thy God hath been, Of seven unto himself he took but one, O rob him not of that to leave him none.

Nine Muses their harmonious voices raise To sing our blessed dear Redeemer's praise, Who is the spring from whence all blessings flow To us poor living mortals here below.
There are commandments ten we should obey, And yet how apt are we to go astray, Leaving them all our folly to pursue, As if we did not care what God could do.
