Phyllis, farewell; I may no longer live,
Yet if I die, fair Phyllis, I forgive,
I live too long, come gentle Death and end
my endless torment, or my grief amend.

German.png German translation

Lebe wohl, Phyllis! Ich werde wohl nicht mehr lange leben;
Wenn ich aber sterbe, schöne Phyllis, dann vergebe ich.
Ich lebe schon zu lange; komm, sanfter Tod,
und mach meiner unendlichen Qual ein Ende oder aber nimm die Trauer von mir.
