Title: Take time while time doth last
Composer: John Farmer
Original text and translations
Take time, while time doth last,
Mark how fair fadeth fast,
beware if envy reign:
take heed of proud disdain;
hold fast, now in thy youth,
regard thy vowed truth;
lest when thou waxeth old,
friends fail and love grow cold.
