In the hour of my distress,
When temptations me oppress,
And when I my sins confess,
Sweet Spirit, comfort me.

When the judgment is reveal'd,
And that open'd which was seal'd ;
When to Thee I have appeal'd,
Sweet Spirit, comfort me.

There is an unmistakable tone of sincerity in the following lines, one of the first poems in Noble Nuntbers :

Forgive me, God, and blot each line
Out of my book that is not Thine.
But if,'mongst all, thou find'st here one
Worthy thy benediction ;
That one of all the rest shall be
The glory of my work and me.

One little corner of his writings is so unlike the rest of his poems that it might pass for the work of another author ; but, save for that, Herrick is the most delightful, frank, refreshing man that one can imagine, fairly running over with the joy of living, and with the cheerfulness that comes from finding great pleasure in small pleasures.
