  • I hope they will not come upon us now.
  • I hope they will not come upon us now.
  • Montjoy. I shall deliver so. Thanks to your highness.

    Duke of Gloucester. I hope they will not come upon us now.

2 IV / 1
  • We shall, my liege.
  • We shall, my liege.
  • Henry V. 'Tis good for men to love their present pains
    Upon example; so the spirit is eased:
    And when the mind is quicken'd, out of doubt,
    The organs, though defunct and dead before,
    Break up their drowsy grave and newly move,
    With casted slough and fresh legerity.
    Lend me thy cloak, Sir Thomas. Brothers both,
    Commend me to the princes in our camp;
    Do my good morrow to them, and anon
    Desire them an to my pavilion.

    Duke of Gloucester. We shall, my liege.

3 IV / 1
  • My liege!
  • My liege!
  • Henry V. O God of battles! steel my soldiers' hearts;
    Possess them not with fear; take from them now
    The sense of reckoning, if the opposed numbers
    Pluck their hearts from them. Not to-day, O Lord,
    O, not to-day, think not upon the fault
    My father made in compassing the crown!
    I Richard's body have interred anew;
    And on it have bestow'd more contrite tears
    Than from it issued forced drops of blood:
    Five hundred poor I have in yearly pay,
    Who twice a-day their wither'd hands hold up
    Toward heaven, to pardon blood; and I have built
    Two chantries, where the sad and solemn priests
    Sing still for Richard's soul. More will I do;
    Though all that I can do is nothing worth,
    Since that my penitence comes after all,
    Imploring pardon.

    Duke of Gloucester. My liege!

4 IV / 3
  • Where is the king?
  • Where is the king?
  • Constable of France. I stay but for my guidon: to the field!
    I will the banner from a trumpet take,
    And use it for my haste. Come, come, away!
    The sun is high, and we outwear the day.

    Duke of Gloucester. Where is the king?

5 IV / 7
  • His eyes are humbler than they used to be.
  • His eyes are humbler than they used to be.
  • Duke of Exeter. Here comes the herald of the French, my liege.

    Duke of Gloucester. His eyes are humbler than they used to be.
