The Liturgy of the Passion

Luke 22:14-23:56
Click here to hear sermon only
Tired with all these, for restful death I cry,
As to behold desert a beggar born,

And needy nothing trimm’d in jollity,
And purest faith unhappily forsworn,
And gilded honour shamefully misplac’d,
And maiden virtue rudely strumpeted,
And right perfection wrongfully disgrac’d
And strength by limping sway disable
And art made tongue-tied by authority,
And folly, doctor-like, controlling skill,
And simple truth miscall’d simplicity,
And captive good attending captain ill:
Tir’d with all these, from these would I be gone,
Save that, to die I leave my love alone.

Sonnet 66
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
