Original text and translations
Come shepherds follow me,
run up apace the mountain.
See lo, besides the fountain.
Love laid to rest, how sweetly sleepeth he,
o take heed, come not nigh him
but haste we hence and fly him,
and lovers, dance with gladness,
for while love sleeps is truce
with care and sadness.
