Come unto me all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will ease you


Matthew 11. 28.

Clamat Diabolus; Venite ad me, & ego interficiam.
Clamat Mundu's; Venite ad me, & ego deficiam.
Clamat Caro; Venite ad me, & ego inficiam.
Clamat Christus; Venite ad me, & ego reficiam.
Not Gilead's Balm, no Pool in Siloam,
Not David's Hyssop, and no Angel can
Or blessed Saint in heaven cure the soul,
When sin hath made it, like a Leper, foul:
Christ is our Balsom; and we have no Tree,
Whose leaves do Nations heal, but only he.
Our Saviours sacred blood speaks better things
Than Abels blood; and greater comfort brings:
Gods anger was incens'd when Abel dy'd,
Our Saviours blood his anger pacifi'd:
The blood of Abel did for vengeance call;
Christs blood for love, and mercy to us all:
Just Abels blood cry'd once, and cry'd no more;
Our Saviours blood cries still; God hath in store


A Sea of mercies, if we do depend
On Christ our loving Bridegroom, and our Friend:
He makes the lame to walk, the blind to see,
The sad to sing for joy, the pris'ner free.
Come all that labour: Blessed is the man,
That hath some oil from this Samaritan.
Come, not by strength of legs or feet, but mind;
By prayers, not by steps, if rest you'll find:
Mount with the wings of prayer, and ascend
Gods holy hill, where pleasures never end.
