Spenser's Fowre Hymnes appear in an anthology printed by Robert and Andrew Foulis that also includes poems by Ben Jonson, Drummond of Hawthornden, Waller, Milton, Cowley, and a variety of modern poets. Scotland, later so fruitful in antiquaries and scholars of English literature, was slow taking an interest in Elizabethan poetry, making this something of a landmark venture.
Love, lift me up upon thy golden wings,
From this base world unto thy heavens hight,
Where I may see those admirable things,
Which there thou workest by thy sovereign might,
Far above feeble reach of earthly sight,
That I thereof an heavenly Hymn may sing
Unto the God of Love, high heavens King.
