Since First I Saw Your Face
(Thomas Ford)

Since first I saw your face
I resolv'd to honour and reknown ye,
If now I be disdained
I wish my heart had never known ye.
     What! I that lov'd and you that lik'd
     Shall be begin to wrangle?
     No, no, no, my heart is fast
     And cannot disentangle.

If I admire or praise you too much
That fault you may forgive me.
Or if my hands had stray'd a touch
Then justly might you leave me.
     I ask'd you leave, you bade me love
     Is't now a time to chide me?
     No, no, no, I'll love you still
     What fortune e'er betide me.

The sun, whose beams most glorious are
Rejecteth no beholder;
And your sweet beauty, past compare,
Made my poor eyes the bolder.
     Where beauty moves and wit delights
     And signs of kindness find me
     There, oh there, where'er I go
     I'll leave my heart behind me.
