There is no one but only you,
that I do thus admiré,

And dearest Celia there's but few
whose love is so entire.
Then cease, Oh! cease your cruelty
and prove but kind unto me,
O do not, do not torture me,

for fear you quite undo me.
What is the reason, cruel maid,

that you do thus deceive me, When oftentimes you promised

that you would never leave me? You love to hear me thus complain,

and thus to see me languish, You glory, glory in my pain

and triumph in my anguish.
Forgive me if I you accuse

for loving of another,
I think I do not you abuse

since that I do discover
Your cruelty to me of late

when I for love implore ye, Be kind or cruel, 'tis my fate

that I must still adore ye. But if you any mercy have,

come quickly and relieve me,
O do not, do not dig my grave,

But now from death reprieve me.
My life or death depends on you,

then do not wretched make me,
For I shall live if you prove true,
But die if you forsake me.
