Title: I have ere this time heard
Composer: Thomas Whythorne
Original text and translations
I have ere this time heard many one say:
Take time while time is, for time will away.
Whoso that great affairs have to be done,
Which at their own will they may despatch soon,
Let no deferings of time be used,
Lest they be far off when they would be sped.
