1Give me my scallop shell of quiet,

2My staff of faith to walk upon,

3My scrip of joy, immortal diet,

4My bottle of salvat{.i}on,

5My gown of glory, hope's true gage,

6And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

7Blood must be my body's balmer,

8No other balm will there be given,

9Whilst my soul, like a white palmer,

10Travels to the land of heaven;

11Over the silver mountains,

12Where spring the nectar fountains;

13And there I'll kiss

14The bowl of bliss,

15And drink my eternal fill

16On every milken hill.

17My soul will be a-dry before,

18But after it will ne'er thirst more;

19And by the happy blissful way

20More peaceful pilgrims I shall see,

21That have shook off their gowns of clay,

22And go apparelled fresh like me.

23I'll bring them first

24To slake their thirst,

25And then to taste those nectar suckets,

26At the clear wells

27Where sweetness dwells,

28Drawn up by saints in crystal buckets.

29And when our bottles and all we

30Are fill'd with immortality,

31Then the holy paths we'll travel,

32Strew'd with rubies thick as gravel,

33Ceilings of diamonds, sapphire floors,

34High walls of coral, and pearl bowers.

35From thence to heaven's bribeless hall

36Where no corrupted voices brawl,

37No conscience molten into gold,

38Nor forg'd accusers bought and sold,

39No cause deferr'd, nor vain-spent journey,

40For there Christ is the king's attorney,

41Who pleads for all without degrees,

42And he hath angels, but no fees.

43When the grand twelve million jury

44Of our sins and sinful fury,

45'Gainst our souls black verdicts give,

46Christ pleads his death, and then we live.

47Be thou my speaker, taintless pleader,

48Unblotted lawyer, true proceeder,

49Thou movest salvation even for alms,

50Not with a bribed lawyer's palms.

51And this is my eternal plea

52To him that made heaven, earth, and sea,

53Seeing my flesh must die so soon,

54And want a head to dine next noon,

55Just at the stroke when my veins start and spread,

56Set on my soul an everlasting head.

57Then am I ready, like a palmer fit,

58To tread those blest paths which before I writ.
