Title: I feign not friendship where I hate
Composer: Orlando Gibbons
Original text and translations
I feign not friendship where I hate,
I fawn not on the great for grace,
I prize, I praise a mean estate,
Ne yet too lofty, nor too base,
This, this is all my choice, my cheer,
A mind content, and conscience clear.
