Composer: George Kirbye
Original text and translations
Mourn now, my soul, with anguish of my pain:
Cross’d are my joys which hope did ever give;
Dry are mine eyes with shedding tears in vain;
Dead is my heart which never more can live;
Hard are my torments, living thus in grief;
Harder yet her heart that yieldeth no relief.
