91. JESU
 
JESU is in my heart, his sacred name 
Is deeply carved there: but th'other week 
A great affliction broke the little frame, 
Ev'n all to pieces: which I went to seek: 
And first I found the corner, where was J,         5
After, where ES, and next where U was graved. 
When I had got these parcels, instantly 
I sat me down to spell them, and perceived 
That to my broken heart he was I ease you, 
                And to my whole is JESU.  10
