if i profane with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine, the gentle fine is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.
Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayers
Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much, Which mannerly devotion shows in this; For saints have hands that pilgrims ' hands do touch, And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.
O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do! They pray; grant thoum lest faith turn to despair
saints do not move, though grant for prayers' sake.
Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayers.
Have not saint lips, and holy palmers too?
