I

I Haue broken thy fold, and wandered long as a lost sheepe: let me returne, O Lord, bicause I haue not forgotten thy commandements. The misdeeds and ignorances of my tender yeers remember not Lord, but according to thy mercie haue mind on me. For thy goodnesse, O Lord, keepe my soule, and deliuer me: let me not be ashamed, bicause I haue trusted in thee. Turne my heauinesse into ioie, cut off my sacke of so∣rowes, and gird me with gladnes, that my glorie may signe vnto thee, and I shall not be greeued.
