Song - Poem by John Cutts, Lord Cutts

ONLY tell her that I love:
   Leave the rest to her and Fate:
Some kind planet from above
May perhaps her pity move:
   Lovers on their stars must wait.--
Only tell her that I love!

Why, O why should I despair!
   Mercy 's pictured in her eye:
If she once vouchsafe to hear,
Welcome Hope and farewell Fear!
   She 's too good to let me die.--
Why, O why should I despair?
