Description of a Maske
in honour of Lord Hayes

by Thomas Campion.

Songs used in the Maske.


Triumph now with Ioy and mirth ;
    The God of Peace hath blest our land :
Wee enioy the fruites of earth
    Through favour of his bounteous hand.
We throgh his most louing grace
    A King and kingly see beholde,
Like a son with lesser stars
    Or carefull shepheard to his fold :
Triumph then, and yeelde him praise
That giues vs blest and ioyfull dayes.
