Publisher Comments:

A GODLY MEDITATIONGive me thy grace, good Lord,
To set the world at nought,
To set my mind fast upon thee.
And not to hang upon the blast of men's mouths.
To be content to be solitary,
Not to long for worldly company,
Little and little utterly to cast off the world,
And rid my mind of all the business thereof.
Not to long to hear of any worldly things,
But that the hearing of worldly phantasies may be to me displeasant.
Gladly to be thinking of God,
Piteously to call for his help,
To lean unto the comfort of God,
Busily to labour to love him.
To know mine own vilety vileness and wretchedness,
To humble and meeken myself under the mighty hand of God,
To bewail my sins passed past ,
For the purging of them, patiently to suffer adversity.
Gladly to bear my purgatory here,
To be joyful of tribulations,
To walk the narrow way that leadeth to life.
To bear the cross with Christ,
To have the last thing in remembrance,
To have ever afore mine eye my death that is ever at hand,
To make death no stranger to me,
To foresee and consider the everlasting fire of hell,
To pray for pardon before the judge come.
To have continually in mind the passion that
Christ suffered for me,
For his benefits uncessantly to give him thanks.
To buy the time again that I before have lost.
To abstain from vain confabulations,
To eschew light foolish mirth and gladness,
Recreations not necessary to cut off,
Of worldly substance, friends, liberty, life and all, to set the loss at right nought,
for the winning of Christ.
To think my most enemies my best friends,
For the brethren ofJoseph could never have done him so much good with their
These minds are more to be desired of every man, than all the treasure
of all the princes and kings, Christian and heathen, were it gathered and laid
together all upon one heap.
