RESURRECTION

20

See how the world doth now anew begin;
Another Adam born of blessed mould
Doth come into a garden as of old,
Within a garden for to conquer sin,
Which at the Garden first did enter in. 5 So deep a mystery who can unfold, That the world's bottom should anew be rolled
From the last end where it before did lin;
For heaven and earth at first were first created,
And last of all was Adam consummated, 10 But in the second world man first was ended, And last of all shall heaven and earth be mended.
No marvel, for the heaven contained us then,
But heaven is now contained by Christ, God, Man.


21. Upon Christ's Saying to Mary 'Why Thou?'

I weep two deaths with one tears to lament:
Christ, my soul's life, out of my heart is fled,
My soul, my heart's life, from me vanished,
With Christ my soul, and with my soul, life went.
I weep, yet weeping brings mere discontent, 5 For as Christ's presence my tears seasoned, When through my tears his love I clearer read,
So now his loss through them cloth more augment.
Yet let my tears once after him fast run
To seek Christ out, 'and when my tears are done 10 Mine eyes and heart shall after him pursue, Until his grace into mine eyes return,
And beams reflect upon my rainbow's dew,
And in my heart I feel his love to burn.
