TEMPLE:

Sacred Poems,

AND

PRIVATE EJACULATIONS.

BY

MR. GEORGE HERBERT,
Late Orator of the University of Cambridge.

In his temple doth every man speak of his honor.

Psalm xxix. 9.

The Dedication.

Lord! my first fruits present themselves to thee! Yet not mine neither; for from thee they came, And must return. Accept of them and me,

And make us strive who shall sing best thy name.

Turn their eyes hither, who shall make a gain: Theirs, who shall hurt themselves or me, refrain.
