- Sonnet #116 -
Let me not to the marriage of true minds (80)
Admit impediments. Love is not love (81)
Which alters when it alteration finds, (82)
Or bends with the remover to remove: (83)
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark (84)
That looks on tempests and is never shaken; (85)
It is the star to every wandering bark, (86)
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. (87)
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks (88)
Within his bending sickle's compass come: (89)
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, (90)

A TRINITY OF
THE 91ST PSALM.(*psalm 90-92*)
 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most
High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God;
in him will I trust.
 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
 Nor for the pestilence that
walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand
at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the
 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
 There shall
no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
 For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
 Because he
hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD,
and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness
 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
 O LORD, how great are thy
works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all
the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed
with fresh oil.
 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked
that rise up against me.
 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
 They shall still bring forth
fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is
no unrighteousness in him.
Pss.93 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself:
the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
 The LORD
on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
 Thy testimonies are very
sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
