Now, O Now I Needs Must Part
by John Dowland
Now, o now I needs must part,
Parting though I absent mourn.
Absence can no joy impart;
Joy once fled cannot return.
While I live I needs must love,
Love lives not when hope is gone.
Now at last despair doth prove
Love divided loveth none.
Sad despair doth drive me hence;
This despair unkindness sends.
If that parting be offence,
It is she which then offends.
Dear, when I from thee am gone,
Gone are all my joys at once.
I lov'd thee and thee alone,
In whole love I joyed once.

"Time Stands Still" by John Dowland (1563 - 1626) lyrics
Time Stands Still
Time stands still with gazing on her face,
Stand still and gaze for minutes hours and years, to her give place:
All other things shall change but she remaines the same,
Till heavens changed have their course and time hath lost his name.
Cupid doth hover up and down blinded with her fair eyes,
And fortune captive at her feet contem'd and conquered lies.
When fortune, love, and time attend on
Her with my fortunes, love, and time, I honour will alone,
If bloudlesse envie say, dutie hath no desert.
Dutie replies that envie knowes her selfe his faithfull heart,
My setled vowes and spotless faith no fortune can remove,
Her Courage shall shew my inward faith, and faith shall trie my love.
