Title: Ah, dear heart, why do you rise?
Composer: Orlando Gibbons
Original text and translations
Ah, dear heart, why do you rise!
The light that shines comes from thine eyes ;
The day breaks not, it is my heart,
Because that you and I must part.
Stay, or else my joys will die,
And perish in their infancy.
