Some little Robin  goes seeking round ~"

How pride aspires ~"

I have been astonished that Men could die Martyrs for religion ~ I  have shuddered at it ~
I shudder no more ~ I could be martyr'd for my Religion

 I could die for that ~ I could die for you.
My creed is Love and you are its only tenet ~
You have ravish'd me away by a Power I cannot resist."
