Composer: Richard Farrant
Original text and translations
O Jove, from stately throne cast down thine heav'nly eye,
And search the secrets of my heart accused wrongfully.
Aye me! if you in heav'n regard the faithful wight,
defend, O God, my rightful cause, and bring the truth to light;
Alas, alas, alas! to just request your gracious grant, ah, yield,
that my Altages may perceive how truth my heart doth shield.
