Why dos thou tempt me so sweet cherished love
I can not truly love an angel's kin
For your heart lies with holy being above
And mine with mortals who shall never win

I know thou shall for ever be my fair
For my heart beats for thou and thou alone
So live for me sweet angel, live with care
For you to fail shall leave me faint and prone

No other can deter me from your side
I only know you love and how I feel
And in this rush of passion I can hide
What others say and do seem nary real

My fairest angel dear, I love you so
But as my love's in vain it can not show
