Behold whiles she before the altar standsHearing the holy priest that to her speakesAnd blesseth her with his two happy hands,How the red roses flush up in her cheekes
Now al is done; bring home the bride againe,Bring home the triumph of our victory ...
Ah when will this long weary day have end,And lende me leave to come unto my love?
And in her bed her lay;Lay her in lillies and in violets,And silken courteins [curtains] over her display,And odourd sheetes, and Arras coverlets.Behold how goodly my faire love does lyIn proud humility
Poure out your blessing on us plentiously,And happy influence upon us raine,That we may raise a large posterity
