Here you will find the Poem A Dialogue Betwixt God And The Soul of poet Sir Henry Wotton
Soul. Whilst my Souls eye beheld no light But what stream'd from thy gracious sight To me the worlds greatest King, Seem'd but some little vulgar thing. God. Whilst thou prov'dst pure; and that in thee I could glass all my Deity; How glad did I from Heaven depart, To find a lodging in thy heart! S. Now Fame and Greatness bear the sway, ('Tis they that hold my prisons Key): For whom my soul would die, might she Leave them her Immortalitie. G. I, and some few pure Souls conspire, And burn both in a mutual fire, For whom I'd die once more, ere they Should miss of Heavens eternal day. S. But Lord! what if I turn again, And with an adamantine chain, Lock me to thee? What if I chase The world away to give thee place? G. Then though these souls in whom I joy Are Seraphims, Thou but a toy, A foolish toy, yet once more I Would with thee live, and for thee die.
