Title: Ne'er let the sun
Composer: Orlando Gibbons
Original text and translations
Ne'er let the sun with his deceiving light,
Seek to make glad these wat'ry eyes of mine,
My sorrow suits with melancholy night,
I joy in dole, in languishment I pine,
My dearest friend is set, he was my sun,
With whom my mirth, my joy, and all is done.
