Title: Alas that e'er I knew this hour
Composer: Samuel Webbe
Original text and translations
Alas that e'er I knew this hour,
My heart relents, I feel her pow'r,
Can then Damon be severe?
Can then Chlora be sincere?
No, no, can Chlora be sincere?
Yes, yes, from love the contest rose
From love's too jealous eye,
A transient discord soon to close
In sweetest harmony.
