Who after he had liv'd to see
In two Worlds much Vanity:
But in the Third he is at Rest
With the Eternal, and there blest.
A God he did believe to be
Triune in one and Veritie.
His Form is ceast, his Life cant dy;
But's gon from Time into Eternity.
So that blest Soul hath tane his Flight
From earthly Body into Heaven's Light.
Where he in Glory now's at Liberty,
To praise the Lord to all Eternity.

[This Beane fined for Alderman, and was of the Sect of the Sweet Singers; and some of that Society, I suppose, made these Verses for him.]
