Romeo and Juliet Lines

ROMEO[To JULIET] If I profane with my unworthiest handThis holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready standTo smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss. JULIETGood pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,Which mannerly devotion shows in this;For saints have hands that pilgrims’ hands do touch,And palm to palm is holy palmers’ kiss.
ROMEOHave not saints lips, and holy palmers too? JULIETAy, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.
ROMEOO, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do;They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair. JULIETSaints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake.
ROMEOThen move not, while my prayer’s effect I take.Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged. JULIETThen have my lips the sin that they have took.
ROMEOSin from thy lips? O trespass sweetly urged!Give me my sin again. JULIETYou kiss by the book.
