The third Part.

16. When the poore Criple by the poole did lye

       When the poore Criple by the Poole did lye,
       Full many yeeres in misery and paine,
       No sooner hee on Christ had set his eye,
       But hee was well, and comfort came againe,
       No Dauid, Iob, nor Criple in more griefe,
       Christ giue mee patience, and my Hopes reliefe.
