Title: Say, gentle nymphs that tread
Composer: Thomas Morley
Original text and translations
Say, gentle nymphs that tread these mountains,
Whilst sweetly you sit playing,
Saw you my Daphne straying
Along your crystal fountains?
If so you chance to meet her,
Kiss her and kindly greet her.
Then these sweet garlands take her,
And say from me, I never will forsake her.
