James I Quote

God gives not kings the stile of Gods in vaine,
For on his throne his sceptre do they sway;
And as their subjects ought them to obey,
So kings should feare and serve their God againe.


New Poems by James I of England, from a Hitherto Unpublished Manuscript (Add. 24195) in the British Museum (ed. 1911)
