Everyman :
A. C. Cawley

Scene 19

Doctour.
This morall men may haue in mynde.
     902
Ye herers, take it of worth, olde and yonge,
     903
And forsake Pryde, for he deceyueth you in the ende;
     904
And remembre Beaute, V. Wyttes, Strength, & Dyscrecyon,
     905
They all at the last do Eueryman forsake,
     906
Saue his Good Dedes there dothe he take.
     907
But be-ware, for and they be small,
     908
Before God he hath no helpe at all:
     909
None excuse may be there for Eueryman.
     910
Alas, how shall he do than?
     911
For after dethe amendes may no man make,
     912
For than mercy and pyte doth hym forsake.
     913
If his rekenynge be not clere whan he doth come,
     914
God wyll saye, 'Ite, maledicti, in ignem eternum.'
     915
And he that hath his accounte hole and sounde,
     916
Hye in heuen he shall be crounde.
     917
Vnto which place God brynge vs all thyder,
     918
That we may lyue body and soule togyder. Page  28
     919
Therto helpe the Trynyte!
     920
Amen, saye ye, for saynt charyte.
     921
FINIS.
Thus endeth this morall playe of Eueryman.
