Lyrics

Awake, awake love
The moon is beaming, the dews are streaming
Awake, awake love
The morn may break love, amidst thy dreaming
Then wake awake before it break
Awake, awake love
The moon is beaming, the dews are streaming

I've lov'd thee and lov'd thee
My soul is thine dear
Would thou wert mine dear
Awake, awake love
The stars above thee
Altho. they shine dear
May not thine eyes in lustre mate
Awake awake love, &c.
