On God:

For contemplation he and valour formed For softness she and sweet attractive grace, He for God only, she for God in him His fair large front and eye sublime declare Absolute rule and hyacinthine locks Round from his parted forelock manly hung Clustering, but not beneath his shoulders broad. Which implied Subjection, but required with gentle sway And by her yielded, by him best received Yielded with coy submission, modest pride, And sweet reluctant amorous delay…. God is thy law, thou mine to know no more Is womans happiest knowledge and her praise…. For nothing lovelier can be found In woman, than to study household good, And good works in her husband to promote.

God is decreeing to begin some new and great period in His Church, even to the reforming of Reformation itself. What does He then but reveal Himself to His servants, and as His manner is, first to His Englishmen.

God is thy law, thou mine to know no more Is woman’s happiest knowledge, and her praise.
