Composer: Thomas Ravenscroft
Description: #16, A Brief Discourse
Original text and translations
Leave of Hymen, and let vs borrow
to bid the Sunne good morrow.
See the Sunne cannot refraine,
but doth rise and give againe,
that which you of Hymen borrow,
and with smiling bidst good morrow
to the Sunne, and to our Brides good-night
to your sweet Beauties,
sweet Beauties touch your side.
