Lyrics: Edmund Waller

While I listen to thy voice,
Chloris, I feel my life decay;
That powerful noise
Calls my fleeting soul away.
Oh, suppress that magic sound
Which destroys without a wound.
Peace, Chloris, peace, or singing, die;
That together you and I
To heaven may go;
For all we know
Of what the blessed do above
Is that they sing and that they love.

Robert Cooke
(1768 - 1814)

While I listen to thy voice
