'' - Dyson G. - TO MUSIC
Charm me asleep, and melt me so
with thy delicious numbers
that, being ravishd, hence I go
. away in easy slumbers.
Ease my sick head
and make my bed
thou power that canst sever
from me this ill
, And quickly still,
, though thou not kill,
. My fever.
Fall on me like a silent dew
, or like those maiden showers
which, by the peep of day, do strew
- . a baptism o'er the flowers.
, Melt, melt my pains
, with thy soft strains,
that having ease me given,
, with full delight,
, I leave this light,
and take my flight
. for Heaven.
