2. What rapture could I take from song [sung text checked 1 time]

I know not what to do,
My mind is reft:
Is song's gift best?
Is love's gift loveliest?
I know not what to do,
Now sleep has pressed
Weight on your eyelids.
Shall I break your rest
Devouring, eager,
Is love's gift best?
Nay, song's the loveliest:
Yet, were you lost,
What rapture could I take from song?
What song were left?
