FAYRE, in loyaltie
I thee love; love me.
I will serve thee aye,
Never will I straye
From thy companie.
Love could never flit
For he hath not wit
Howe to fynde a waye:
Nowe, by Goddës faye!
Ladye, laye thy laughynge mouth
On myne owne I praye.

Fayre the gyft. I trowe,
An thou doe bestowe,
That thy heart is myne;
Then shall I be thyne
More and more alsoe.
Gentle ladye tell
If thou fynde me well
And sweet love have swaye:
Nowe, by Goddës faye!
Ladye, laye thy laughynge mouth
On myne owne I praye.

Fayre of face art thou.
Never cheek and browe
Could I kiss enough;
An I won thy love,
'Twere an end of woe.
Soe that I may wit
If thou grant me it,
And thou wilt me paye:
Nowe, by Goddës faye!
Ladye, laye thy laughynge mouth
On myne owne I praye.
