The Booke of it selfe.

I am , that was not; and I was, that am;
I was vnmade; that was, in state confus'd:
I am, for Arte hath form'd that formlesse Frame,
Yet form'd my nature was, ere Arte was vs'd.
Mother-Tongue, and VVit, Observance, & goodwil
Haue made me what I am, or good, or ill.

Not vnto vs (ô Lord) not vnto vs, but to thy name giue the praise and glory. Psal. 115. 1.
