Feare God And Honour the King.
A Psalme of Prayer and praise for
the prosperous and good estate of our Soveraigne
Lord the King, his royall progeny, and the whole estate
of his Majesties dominions and people; drawne from the Foun-
taine of Faith, for the private use of the poore Orphanes in Christs Hospi-
tall; or any true Christian, wishing wealth and peace to Sion.

LORD give thy Judgements to our King, therein instruct him well:
And with his Sonne that Princely thing, Lord let thy graces dwell.

That they may governe righteously, and rule thy folke aright:
And so defend with equitie, the weake, which have no might.
The simple heart, the Widowes poore, and Orphanes in distresse,
To save from wrong, and evill doer to punish and represse.

Esa. 32.1.
Psal. 72.1.
Psal. 82.2.
psal. 101.
Psal. 12.5.

Direct his Nobles readily, to guide their folke in peace:
And let the Magistrates apply, in justice to increase.
That they also may helpe the weake, and those with wrong opprest:
From such as hurt and proudly speake, to give them peace and rest,
That all may know, and eke obey; regarde and feare thy might:
So long as Sunne doeth shine by day, or else the Moone by night.

Esa. 32.2.
Pal. 72.4.
Plal 10.12.
Psal. 12.4.
Plal. 72.12.

Lord make our King unto the just, like raine on fields new mowen
And as the drops that laye the dust, and fresh the land late sowen,
That they may prosper in his time, In grace, in wealth and peace:
Although the wicked doe repine, yet let them not increase.
That these endes of the earth (the West) possessions of thy sonne,
May in thy right, rule and be blest, till date of time be done.

Pro. 16.15.
Psal. 72.6.
Psal. 85.9.
Psal. 10.1.
Psal. 10.15.
Pro. 20.26.
Psal. 2.

Plant unitie within his Realmes, with wealth and grace devine:
Let knowledge flow like christall streames, and Babels sect decline.
Direct him and his royall race, thy Syon still to reare:
In length of dayes with health and peace, in thy true faith and feare.
That sacrifices of prayer, and prayse, with almes may offered be:
In faith and love, to thee alwaies, by all in each degree.

Psa. 144.15
Esa. 66.12.
Re. 18.2.
Heb. 13.15.
16.
Psal. 89.15
Jeam. 1.27.

With grace & love, with wealth and peace, this noble Citye blesse,
And all that do our good increase; we pray thee Lord no lesse.
Accept our prayers, receive our praise, which now to thee we give,
For these, and all thy gifts alwaies; and will do while wee live.
All glorie to the Trinitie, both now and eke for aye,
To God all one, in persons three, one essence pure we pray.


FINIS.
