The second Booke of Ayres



1   O what vnhop't for sweet supply !
      O what ioyes exceeding !
What an affecting charme feele I
      From delight proceeding ?
That which I long despair'd to be,
      To her I am, and shee to mee.

2   Shee that alone in cloudy griefe
      Long to mee appeared ;
Shee now alone with bright reliefe,
      All those clouds hath cleared.
Both are immortall, and diuine,
      Since I am hers, and she is mine.
