Two Bookes of Ayres:
The First Booke
by Thomas Campion.
Tune thy Musicke to thy hart,
Sing thy ioy with thankes, and so thy sorrow :
Though Devotion needes not Art,
Sometimes of the poore the rich may borrow.
Striue not yet for curious wayes :
Concord pleaseth more, the lesse 'tis strained ;
Zeale affects not outward prayse,
Onely striues to show a loue vnfained.
Loue can wondrous things affect,
Sweetest Sacrifice, all wrath appeasing ;
Loue the highest doth respect ;
Loue alone to him is euer pleasing.
