The Church.

OH, how faire art thou [also] my beloued? How wel∣fauoured and pleasant art thou? Our bed [euen the hart of the faithfull: where thou, O Christ, dwellest by thy spirit] is all greene, bedecked with flowers: the beames or seelings of our house are of Cedar trees, and our crosse ioints of Cipresse.
