Prepare, prepare to die: life lingers but a time.

1. O Death, rock me asleep,
O sighs, sobs and grievous groans,
+
Bring me to quiet rest;
O sighing sobs and grievous groans surcaese!
+
Let pass my weary, guiltless ghost out of my careful breast.
+
Toll on the passing bell
What trickling tears could cleanse such cruel crime:
+
Ring out the doleful knell,
This sinful soul on earth shall find no peace.
+
let the sound my death tell.
In blackest hell my guilty ghost must pine.
+
Death doth draw nigh.
O death draw near, O death draw near, no life so loth as mine.

1. O Death, rock me asleep,
Bring me to quiet rest;
Let pass my weary, guiltless ghost out of my careful breast.
Toll on the passing bell
Ring out the doleful knell,
let the sound my death tell.
Death doth draw nigh.
Sound my death dolefully, for now I die.

2. Farewell, my pleasures past: My pains alone.
In prison strong, who can express, alas they are so strong.
My dolours will not suffer strength,
My life for to prolong,
Lest my woe work his cruel hope
That I must taste. This misery.
