Everyman.
I had wende surer I sholde you haue founde.
     826
He that trusteth in his Strength,
     827
She hym deceyueth at the length.
     828
Bothe Strength and Beaute forsaketh me;
     829
Yet they promysed me fayre and louyngly.
     830
Dyscrecion.
Eueryman, I wyll after Strength be gone.
     831
As for me, I wyll leue you alone.
     832
Eueryman.
Why, Dyscrecyon, wyll ye forsake me?
     833
Dyscrecion.
Ye, in faytyh, I wyll go fro the,
     834
For whan Strength goth before
     835
I folowe after euer more.
     836

Yet, I pray the, for the loue of the Trynyte,
     837
Loke in my graue ones pyteously.

Nay, so nye wyll I not come.

Fare well, euerychone!
