Title: That muse which sung
Composer: George Kirbye
Original text and translations
That muse which sung the beauty of thy face
In sweet well-tuned songs
And harmony that pleased,
If still I be diseased,
Can carol of thy wrongs
And blaze those faults that will thy worth disgrace.
Yet if thou dost repent thee
I will forgive; that mends shall well content thee.
