Poem by Alexander Montgomerie
Sonnet 35. A Ladyis Lamentatione. III
Lord, for my missis micht I mak a mends, By putting me to penance as thou pleasd ! Good God ! forgive offenders that offends, And heall the hurt of sik as are diseasde : Hou soon they murne, with mercy thou [art measde] As thou hes said ; and surely so it semes : Suppose my silly saull with sin be seasde, Jit the reversiones rests that it redemes. Destroy me not, that so of the estemes, My suete Redemer; let me neuer die, Bot blink on me euen with Thy blisful b[eames,] And mak ane other Magdelene of me. Forgive my gylt, sen nane bot God is gude ; So with “Peccavi Pater” I conclude.
