AND YE SHALL WALK IN SILK ATTIRE.
2.
The mind whose meanest wish is pure
Far dearer is to me; And ere I'm forced to break my faith
I'll lay me down and dee. For I ha'e vow'd a virgin's vow
My lover's fate to share : And he has gi'en to me his heart,
And what can man do mair?
And ye shall walk, &c.
3-His mind and manners wan my heart.
He gratefu' took the gift, And did I wish to see it back,
It wad be waur than theft; For langest life can ne'er repay
The love he bears to me ; And ere I'm forced to break my faith
I'll lay me down and dee.
And ye shall walk, &c.
H. 4868.
