Most holy and religious fear it is,
To keep those many many bodies safe,
That live.

HAMLET, iii. 3.

What is not holy, that we swear not by,
But take the Highest to witness.

ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL, iv. 2.

I'll make a voyage to the Holy Land,
To wash this blood off from my guilty hand.

RICHARD II. v. 6.

True is it, that we have seen better days,
And have with holy bell been knoll’d to church.

AS YOU LIKE IT, ii. 7.

Do not count it holy
To hurt by being just: it is not lawful

To rob in the behalf of charity.

He's honourable,
And, doubling that, most holy.

CYMBELINE, iii. 4.

Shakespeare.

I 'll send some holy bishop to entreat ;
For God forbid so many simple souls
Should perish by the sword.

2 HENRY VI. iv. 4.

See where his grace stands 'tween two clergymen !-
Two props of virtue for a christian prince :
And, see, a book of prayer in his hand,
True ornaments to know a holy man.

He is within, with two right reverend fathers,
Divinely bent to meditation :
And in no worldly suit would he be mov'd,
To draw him from his holy exercise.

And hath given countenance to his speech,
With almost all the holy vows of Heaven.

SACRAMENT.

Before I freely speak my mind herein,
You shall not only take the sacrament
To bury my intents, but to effect
Whatever I shall happen to devise.

Thou didst receive the sacrament to fight, * * * *

* And, like a traitor to the name of God, Didst break that vow.

Both they, and we, perusing o'er these notes,
May know wherefore we took the sacrament,
And keep our faiths firm and inviolable.

KING John, v. 2.
Once did I lay in ambush for your life;
A trespass that doth vex my grieved soul :
But, ere I last receiv'd the sacrament,
I did confess it.

RICHARD II. i. 1.

Great God of Heaven, say Amen to all!

* * * *
And then, as we have ta’en the sacrament,
We will unite the white rose and the real
Smile, Heaven, upon this fair conjuncti.

onjunction !

MARTIAL SENTENCES IN SHAKESPEARE,

TREATING OF WAR AND BATTLE, IN WHICH THE NAME OF GOD IS

REVERENTLY AND RELIGIOUSLY INTRODUCEDASCRIBING ALL

HUMAN SUCCESS TO THE DEITY,

The peace of Heaven is theirs, that lift their swords
In such a just and charitable war.–

KING JOHN, ii. 1.

In God's name, and the king's, say who thou art,
And why thou com’st, thus knightly clad in arms :
Speak truly, on thy knighthood, and thy oath ;
And so defend thee, Heaven, and thy valour!

RICHARD II. i. 3.

Whose high deeds, and whose great name in arms,
Holds from all soldiers chief majority,
And military title capital,
Through all the kingdoms that acknowledge Christ.

1 HENRY IV. iii. 2.

Hence, therefore, every leader to his charge ;
For, on their answer, will we set on them;
And God befriend us, as our cause is just.

1 HENRY IV. v. 1.

Shakespeare.

Three knights upon our party slain to-day;
A noble earl, and many a creature else,
Had been alive this hour,
If, like a Christian, thou hadst truly borne
Betwixt our armies true intelligence.

[ocr errors]

Strike up your drums, pursue the scatter'd stray ;
Heaven, and not we, hath safely fought to-day.

2 HENRY IV. iv. 2.

How you awake the sleeping sword of war ;
We charge you, in the name of God, take heed :
For never two such kingdoms did contend,
Without much fall of blood.

HENRY V. i. 2.

Follow your spirit; and upon this charge,
Cry, God for Harry! England ! and St. George !"

HENRY V. iii. 1.

O God of battles ! steel my soldiers' hearts !
Possess them not with fear ; take from them now
The sense of reckoning, if the opposed numbers
Pluck their hearts from them !-Not to-day, O Lord !
O not to-day, think not upon the fault
My father made in compassing the crown.

HENRY V. iv. 1.
