Change me, O heavens
Language: English 
Change me, O heavens, into the Ruby stone
That on my Love's fair locks doth hang in gold.
Yet leave me speech to her to make my moan,
And give me eyes her beauties to behold.
Or if you will not make my flesh a stone,
Make her hard heart seem flesh that now seems none.
