Title: In deep distress
Composer: John Mundy
Original text and translations
In deep distress to live without delight,
Were such a life as few I think would crave.
In pangs and pains to languish day and night,
Were too, too much for one poor soul to have.
If weal and woe will thus continue strife,
A gentle death were good to cut off such a life.
