1 Tune thy Musicke to thy hart,
Sing the ioy with thankes, and so thy sorrow :
Though Deuotion needes not Art,
Sometime of the poore the rich may borrow.
2 Striue not yet for curious wayes,
Concord pleaseth more the lesse 'tis strained ;
Zeale affects not outward prayse,
Onely striues to shew a loue vnfained.
3 Loue can wondrous things effect,
Sweetest Sacrifice, all wrath appeasing :
Loue the highest doth respect,
Loue alone to him is euer pleasing.
