Nor by our Works thereon His Days profane.
With Honours due we must our Neighbours treat;
And sweetly wish them Lives both Long and Sweet .
With Chastity we must our selves Behave;
And do no Wrong in what we get or Save.
Truth we must utter, and Abhor to Lye;
And be Content , tho' in Adversity.

With Wicked Spirits in Eternal Flame.
The Godly shall, with their Great GOD, on High,
Reap Joyes , High Joyes , to all Eternity.
