Had Loyalty been Life, Brave Guy, thou’d’st Than
Stood Kendall’s Everlasting Alderman,
Nay, could the joynte united force of All
That’s good or vert’ous over death prevaile
Thy life’s pure thre’d noe Time or Fate could sever
And thou’dst still Liv’d to pray, King live for Ever
But thou art gone; A proof such Vertue is
Too Good for Earth, And onely fit for Bliss,
And blissful Seats ; Where, if bless’d Spirits doe
Concern themselves with any thing below
Thy pray’r’s the same, Thou still do’st Supplicate
For Charles his Life, For England’s Church, & State,
Whil’st to Thy just Eternal Memory,
Envy & Malice must in this Agree,
None better Lov’d, or Serv’d, his Prince than Thee.
