O Blessed bodie! Whither art thou thrown? No lodging for thee, but a cold hard stone? So many hearts on earth, and yet not one Receive thee? Sure there is room within our hearts good store; For they can lodge transgressions by the score: Thousands of toyes dwell there, yet out of doore They leave thee. But that which shews them large, shews them unfit. What ever sinne did this pure rock commit, Which holds thee now? Who hath indited it Of murder? Where our hard hearts have took up stones to braine thee, And missing this, most falsly did arraigne thee; Onely these stones in quiet entertain thee, And order. And as of old the Law by heav’nly art Was writ in stone; so thou, which also art The letter of the word, find’st no fit heart To hold thee. Yet do we still persist as we began, And so should perish, but that nothing can, Though it be cold, hard, foul, from loving man Withhold thee.
