The Church.

O That I [that is, the fathers of the old testament,] might find thee without, [that is, sée the incarnation of Christ,] and kisse thee, whome I loue as my brother, which suckt my mothers breasts, then they should not despise thee nor mee.

I will leade thee, and bring thee into my mothers house, that thou [O Christ] mightest teach me, and that I might giue thee drinke of the spiced wine, and of the sweet sap of my pomgranats.

His left hand shall be vnder my head, and his right hand shall imbrace me. [His gratious fauour shall preserue me from desperation in aduersitie, and from presumption in pro∣speritie.]
