deare, if you change, I will never choose again
faire, if you fail, i’ll judge beauty vain

sweet, if you shrink, I will never think of love
wise, if too weak, never more wits prove

deare, sweet, fair, wise
if you change, don’t shrink, nor be weak
cuz on my faith, yes on my faith, it shall never ever break

earth, with her flowers, sooner heaven adorn
heav’n, her bright stars, through earths dim globe shall be moved
fire, heat shall lose, frosts of flame born
air, made to shine black as hell prove

earth, heaven, fire, air
the world transformed shall view
if I prove false to faith
or strange to you

...words adapted from a John Dowland lute song (1597)
