O Solitude
'Tis nature's voice
Celia has a thousand charmes
I attempt from love's sickness to fly
If musick be the food of love
Not all my torments
From silent shades
Musick for a while
Sweeter than roses
Crown the altar
Lord, what is man
Sleep, Adam, sleep
Now that the sun hath veil'd his light
The fatal hour comes on apace
Here the deities approve
Be welcome, then, great sir
Thrice happy lovers
Hark! the echoing air
Hark! how all things.
