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.
