This is Page 41 of the bound volume of The Deer’s Cry at the Manx Museum.

All the virtues in the earlier pages have been invoked to be a protection between “me” and the negative forces of pages 39 and 40 and, as we shall see, some of the following pages. Therefore, “Against “all these negative forces are invoked the virtues of:
“Invocation of the Trinity” (Page 3), , “To the virtue of His Crucifixion…” (Page 7), “To the virtue of His Resurrection” (Page 9), “To the virtue of His coming ………” (Page 11) “God’s virtue to pilot me” (Page 29)/

The words in the above paragraph are just my personal and subjective thoughts. Knox must have had so many ideas and thoughts behind this page and the other pages which, perhaps, we will never know.

The Archibald Knox Forum would like to hear your thoughts, ideas and comments on any of the pages from The Deer’s Cry.
