Lyrics


Weep you no more, sad fountain

Weep you no more, sad fountains;
What need you flow so fast?
Look how the snowy mountains
Heaven's sun doth gently waste.
But my sun's heavenly eyes
View not your weeping
That now lies sleeping,
Softly, now softly lies
Sleeping.

Sleep is a reconciling,
A rest that Peace begets.
Doth not the sun rise smiling
When fair at e'en he sets?
Rest you then, rest, sad eyes,
Melt not in weeping
While she lies sleeping,
Softly, now softly lies
Sleeping.
