Thou wert content to be smitten with canes, and
have that holy face, which angels with joy and
wonder do behold, be spit upon, and be despised,
when compared with Barabbas, and scourged most
rudely with unhallowed hands, till the pavement
was purpled with that holy blood, and condemned
to a sad and shameful, a public and painful death,
and arrayed in scarlet, and crowned with thorns,
and stripped naked, and then clothed and louden

with the cross, and tormented with a tablet stuck
with nails at the fringes of thy garment, and bound
hard with cords, and dragged most vilely and most
piteously till the load was too great, and did sink
thy tender and virginial body to the earth : and yet
didst comfort the weeping women, and didst more
pity thy persecutors than thyself, and wert grieved
for the miseries of Jerusalem to come forty years
after, more than for thy present passion.
Lord, what is man, &c.

Blessed be thy name, holy Jesus, and blessed
be that incomparable sweetness and holy sorrow
which Thou sufferedst, when thy holy hands and
feet were nailed upon the cross, and the cross
being set in a hollowness of the earth, did in the
fall rend the wounds wider, and there naked and
bleeding, sick and faint, wounded and despised,
didst hang upon the weight of thy wounds three
long hours, praying for thy persecutors, satisfying
thy Father's wrath, reconciling the penitent thief,
providing for thy holy and afflicted mother, tasting
vinegar and gall; and when the fulness of thy
suffering was accomplished, didst give thy soul
into the hands of God, and didst descend to the
regions of longing souls, who waited for the reve-
lation of this thy day in their prisons of hope :
and then thy body was transfixed with a spear, and
issued forth two sacraments, water and blood ;



OF THE PASSION. 263

and thy body was composed to burial, and dwelt
in darkness three days and three nights.

Lord, what is man that Thou art mindful of him,
and the son of man that Thou visitest him ?

Thus, blessed Jesus, Thou didst finish thy
holy passion with pain and anguish so great that
nothing could be greater than it, except thyself
and thy own infinite mercy ; and all this for man,
even for me, than whom nothing could be more
miserable, thyself only excepted, who becamest so
by undertaking our guilt and our punishment.
And now, Lord, who hast done so much for me,
be pleased only to make it effectual to me, that it
may not be useless and lost as to my particular,
lest I become eternally miserable, and lost to all
hopes and possibilities of comfort. All this de-
serves more love than I have to give : but, Lord,
do Thou turn me all into love, and all my love into
obedience, and let my obedience be without inter-
ruption ; and then I hope Thou wilt accept such a
return as I can make. Make me be something
that Thou delightest in, and Thou shalt have all
that I am or have from Thee, even whatsoever
Thou makest fit for thyself. Teach me to live
wholly for my Saviour Jesu, and be ready to die
for Jesus, and to be conformable to His life and
sufferings, and to be united to Him by inseparable
unions, and to own no passions but what may be

servants to Jesus, and disciples of His institution.
O sweetest Saviour, clothe my soul with thy holy
robe ; hide my sins in thy wounds, and bury them
in thy grave ; and let me rise in the life of grace,
and abide and grow in it, till I arrive at the king-
dom of glory. Amen.

BISHOP JEREMY TAYLOR.

IN THE COURSE OF PUBLICATION,

CATENA CLASSICORUM,

A Series of Classical Authors,

EDITED BY MEMBERS OF BOTH UNIVERSITIES UNDER
THE DIRECTION OF

THE REV. ARTHUR HOLMES, M.A.

FELLOW AND LECTURER OF CLARE COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE,

AND

THE REV. CHARLES BIGG, M.A.

SENIOR STUDENT AND LATE TUTOR OF CHRIST CHURCH, OXFORD,
SECOND CLASSICAL MASTER OF CHELTENHAM COLLEGE.

THE Editors of this Series design to issue texts of all the authors which
are commonly read, and to illustrate them with nn English Commentary,
which they will endeavour to render compendious as well as clear!
Standard books of Classical reference being now accessible to every'
Scholar, it has become needless to insert in notes the mass of extraneous
matter which for older editions was indispensable. On many subjects
collateral to the text the Editors of the present Series will be able to sub-
stitute reference for quotation, and will thus obtain greater scope for care-
fully discussing points of scholarship closely connected with the text itself.
The Series is intended to be available not only for Classical Students at
the Universities, but also for the highest Forms of Public Schools.

The following Works are in progress :
