141
O man, do never faint nor fear When God the truth shall try,
But mark how Stephen for Christ's sake Was willing for to die.
Which doctrine seem'd most wond'rous strange
Among the faithless Jews, And for the same despitefully
Good Stephen they accused. Before the elders was he brought,
His answer for to make, But they could not his spirit withstand
Whereby this man did speak.
O man, &c. And then false witness did appear,
And look'd him in the face, And said he spake blasphemous words
Against that holy place; And how he said that Jesus Christ
The Temple would destroy, And change the laws which they so long
From Moses did enjoy.
O man, &c Whilst this was told, the multitude
Beholding him aright, His comely face began to shine
Most like an Angel bright.
