Lyrics:

Weepe you no more sad fountaines,
What need you flowe so fast,
Looke how the snowie mountaines,
Heav'ns sunne doth gently waste.

But my sunnes heav'nly eyes
View not your weeping.
That now lie sleeping, that now lie sleeping,
Softly softly
That now softly lies sleeping.


Sleepe is a reconciling,
A rest that peace begets:
Doth not the sunne rise smiling,
When faire at ev'n he sets,
Rest you then, rest, sad eyes,
Melt not in weeping,
While she lies sleeping, while she lies sleeping,
Softly softly
That now softly lies sleeping.
