O what hath overwrought My all amazed thought? Or whereto am I brought That thus in vain have sought Till Time and Truth hath taught, I labour all for nought? The day I see is clear, But I am ne'er the near, For grief doth still appear To cross our merry cheer, While I can nothing hear, But winter all the year. Cold, hold, The sun will shine warm, Therefore now fear no harm. O blessed beams Where beauty streams Happy happy light to love's dreams.
