The Church.

O Fountaine of the gardens! O Well of liuing wa∣ters and the springs of Lebanon! [I confesse that all my glorie and beautie commeth of thée, O Christ, who art the true fountaine of all grace and goodnesse to me the Church thy spouse.]

Arise O north wind, and come O thou south wind, come and blowe on my garden, that the spices & smell thereof may flowe out, and be carried on euerie side: yea let my welbeloued come to his garden, and eate of the sweet and plesant fruits that growe therein. [For this is all my desire to haue thée, O Christ, my beloued spouse, to come and comfort me, and to powre the graces of thy holie spirit from all quarters vpon me.]
