Title: Ah, cruel hateful Fortune
Composer: George Kirbye
Original text and translations
Ah! Cruel, hateful Fortune!
now must I Death importune,
since that I am of all my Hope deprived,
nor but for Sorrow had my soul survived,
only this hope doth rest for my contentment,
that Fortune, tir'd, will yield me some amendment.
