Canst thou love and lie alone?
Love is so disgraced,
pleasure is best,
wherein is rest
in a heart embraced.

Rise, rise, rise,
daylight do not burn out,
Bells do ring and birds do sing,
only I that mourn out.

Morning-star doth now appear,
Wind is hushed and sky is clear.
Come, come away!
Canst thou love and burn out day?
Rise, rise, rise…
