The High Priest then to them did say,
And bid them tell at large, If this was true which at that time
They laid unto his charge.
O man, &c. Then Stephen did put forth his voice,
And he did first unfold The wond'rous works that God hath wrought
Even from their fathers old ; That they thereby might plain perceive
Christ Jesus should be he That from the burthen of the law
Should save us frank and free.
O man, &c. But, oh! quoth he, you wicked men,
Which of the prophets all Did not your fathers persecute,
And keep in woeful thrall, Who told the coming of the just
In prophecies most plain, Who here amongst you was betray'd
And most unjustly slain ?
O man, &c. But when they heard him so to say,
Their hearts in sunder clave, And gnashing on him with their teeth,
Like mad men they did rave.
