| ARLEY, cheerfull, mounting Larke,|
ight's gentle vsher, Morning's clark,
n merry notes delighting ;
tint awhile thy song, and harke,
nd learne my new inditing.
eare vp this hymne, to heau'n it beare,
uen vp to heau'n, and sing it there,
o heau'n each morning beare it ;
aue it set to some sweet sphere,
nd let the Angels heare it.
enownd Astræa, that great name,
xceeding great in worth and fame,
reat worth hath so renownd it ;
t is Astræa's name I praise,
ow then, sweet Larke, do thou it raise,
nd in high Heauen resound it.
