First Line: When thou didst give thy love to me
Last Line: Unless I give my life for thee.
Alternate Author Name(s): Bridges, Robert+(2)
Subject(s): Love


When thou didst give thy love to me,
Asking no more of gods or men
I vow'd I would contented be,
If Fate should grant us summers ten.

But now that twice the term is sped,
And ever young my heart and gay,
I fear the words that then I said,
And turn my face from Fate away.

To bid thee happily good-bye
I have no hope that I can see,
No way that I shall bravely die,
Unless I give my life for thee.
