If Music Be the Food of Love
If music be the food of love,
sing on till I am fill'd with joy;
for then my list'ning soul you move
with pleasures that can never cloy,
your eyes, your mien, your tongue declare
that you are music ev'rywhere.
Pleasures invade both eye and ear,
so fierce the transports are, they wound,
and all my senses feasted are,
tho' yet the treat is only sound.
Sure I must perish by our charms,
unless you save me in your arms.
--Henry Heveningham (1651-1700)
I. Rise Up, My Love
Rise up, my love, my fair one and come
For lo, the winter is past and the rain is
over and gone
The clouds appear on the earth
The time for the singing of birds is come
And the voice of the turtle is heard in the
Whither is my beloved gone, o thou fairest
Whither is thy beloved turned aside, that
we may seek him with thee
My beloved is gone down into his garden
To the beds of spices to feed in the gardens,
and to gather lilies
I am my beloved's, and he is mine.
--Song of Songs 2:10-12; 6:1-3
II. Many Waters
Many waters cannot quench love.
--Song of Songs 8:7
III. Awake O North Wind
Awake O North wind and come thou South
Blow upon my garden that the spices may
Let my beloved come into his garden, and
eat his pleasant fruits.
--Song of Songs 4:16
IV. Set Me As A Seal
Set me as a seal upon thine heart
As a seal upon thine arm
For love is strong, Amen.
--Song of Songs 8:6
