?. Do you not know how Love lost first his seeing? [sung text checked 1 time]

Do you not know how Love lost first his seeing?
Because with me once gazing
On those fair eyes where all powers have their being,
She with her beauty blazing,
Which death might have revivèd,
Him of his sight and me of heart deprivèd.

?. See, see, mine own sweet jewel [sung text checked 1 time]

See, see, mine own sweet jewel,
What I have for my darling:
A robin-redbreast and a starling.
These I give both in hope to move thee;
Yet thou say’st I do not love thee.
