Good-morrow to my lady bright,
I’ll early sing beneath her bower;
Let others serenade by night,
I’ll choose the brilliant morning hour:
Good-morrow, love, good-morrow!

The morn is fair, and like my love;
Benignant, gracious, so is she;
It sheds a radiance from above;
And smiles on all, as she on me:
Good-morrow, love, good-morrow!

Appear, my love, and beam with light;
Thy lattice is mine orient;
Arise, and bless my longing sight;
My heart awaits thee, jubilant:
Good-morrow, love, good-morrow!
