Receive each other, God speak this Amen!

All. Amen!

K. Henry. Prepare we for our marriage ; on which day,
My Lord of Burgundy, we'll take your oath
And all the Peers, for surety of our leagues,
Then shall I swear to Kate, and you to me,
And may our oaths well kept and prosp'rous be! [Exeunt,

Enter Chorus.
Cho. Thus far with rough and all-unable pen

Our bending author hath pursu'd the story,
In little room confining mighty men,

Mangling by starts the full course of their glory. Small time, but in that small most greatly liv'd

This star of England. Fortune made his sword;
By which the world's best garden he archiev'd,

And of it left his son imperial Lord.
Henry the Sixth, in infant bands crown'd King

Of France and England, did this King succeed :
Whose state so many had the managing,

That they lost France, and made his England bleed : Which oft our stage hath shown; and for their fake, In your fair minds let this acceptance take.

The End of the THIRD VOLUME.
