Title: Yet if that age
Composer: Orlando Gibbons
Original text and translations
Yet if that age had frosted o'er his head,
Or if his face had furrow'd been with years,
I would not so bemoan that he is dead,
I might have been more niggard of my tears;
But O the sun new-rose is gone to bed,
And lilies in their springtime hang their head.
