Title: Sleepe, Sleepe
Composer: Giles Earle
Original text and translations
Sleepe, sleepe, though griefe torment thy body, sleepe
while musicke banish to the lowest deepe
thy soul afflicting foe.
Sleepe, sleepe, and while thy body rests in slumber,
Fly, jealous thoughts, that true affects do comber,
down to her den of woe.
Now she is gone and sleepe thine eyes forsake
and as a newmade man, from griefe awake!
