Page 105 - Lord, I am thi dowtere, Trewthe, Thou wilt se I be not lore, Thyn unkynde creatures to save were rewthe, The offens of man hath grevyd the sore. Whan Adam had synnyd, thou seydest yore, That he xulde deye and go to helle, And now to blysse hym to restore, Twey contraryes mow not togedyr dwelle.
Page 30 - I will speak onely of things performed by art and nature, wherein shall be nothing magical ; and first by the figuration of art, there may be made instruments of navigation without men to rowe in them, as great ships to brooke the sea, only with one man to steere them, and they shall, sayle far more swiftly than if they were full of men : also chariots that shall move with an unspeakable force, without any living creature to stirre them.

Likewise, an instrument may be made to fly withall, if one sit in the midst of the instrument, and doe turne an engine, by which the wings being artificially composed, may beat ayre after...
Page 106 - Ryghtwysnes, 30 are to vengeabyl, Endles synne God endles may restore, Above alle hese werkys, God is mercyabyl, Thow he forsook God be synne, be feyth he forsook hym never the more. And thow he presumyd nevyr so sore, 30 must consyder the frelnes of mankende, Lerne and 30 lyst, this is Goddys lore, The mercy of God is withowtyn ende.
