Description


Messenger. I pray you all give your audience, And hear this matter with reverence, By figure a moral play--The Summoning of Everyman called it is, That of our lives and ending showsHow transitory we be all day.This matter is wondrous precious, But the intent of it is more gracious, And sweet to bear away.The story saith, --Man, in the beginning, Look well, and take good heed to the ending, Be you never so gay Ye think sin in the beginning full sweet, Which in the end causeth thy soul to weep, When the body lieth in clay.Here shall you see how Fellowship and Jollity, Both Strength, Pleasure, and Beauty, Will fade from thee as flower in May.For ye shall hear, how our heaven kingCalleth Everyman to a general reckoning: Give audience, and hear what.
