Edition notes: Reformating of #14905, which is really SSTB, rather than SATB, the soprano and alto having identical ranges. This version is transposed down a major 3rd. Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score. Revised files uploaded 04/04/17.

The wavering planet most unstable,
goddess of the waters flowing,
that bears a sway in each thing growing,
and makes my Lady variable,
oft I seek to undermind her,
yet I know not where to find her.
