SONG, by            
First Line: You say you love; repeat again
Last Line: And falls into his arms.
Subject(s): Love

YOU say you love; repeat again,
Repeat th' amazing sound,
Repeat the ease of all my pain,
The cure of every wound.

What you to thousands have denied,
To me you freely give;
Whilst I in humble silence died
Your mercy bids me live.

So upon Latmos top each night
Endymion sighing lay,
Gaz'd on the moon's transcendent light,
Despair'd, and durst not pray.

But divine Cynthia saw his grief,
Th' effect of conquering charms,
Unask'd the goddess brings relief,
And falls into his arms.
