Edition notes: Reformatting of #13105, which is really SSTB rather than SATB, since both Soprano and Alto parts go up to an A above the Treble stave. This version is transposed down a major 3rd. Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score. MusicXML source file is in compressed .mxl format. Revised files uploaded 03/02/19.

Thrice blessed be the giver, be the giver,
that gave sweet Love that golden quiver,
and live he long among the gods anointed,
that made the arrowheads sharp-pointed.
If either of them both had quailed,
she of my love, and I of hers, had failed.
