1  Sleep wayward thoughts,and rest you with my love,
Let not my Love be with my love diseas'd.
Touch not proud hands, least you her anger move,
But pine you with my longings, long displeas'd.
Thus while she sleeps, I sorrow for her sake,
So sleeps my Love, and yet my love doth wake.

2  But on the fury of my restless fear,
The hidden anguish of my flesh desires,
The glories and the beauties that appear,
Between her brows near Cupid's closed fires
Thus while she sleeps, moves sighing for her sake,
So sleeps my Love, and yet my love doth wake.

3  My love doth rage, and yet my Love doth rest,
Fear in my love, and yet my Love secure,
Peace in my Love, and yet my love oppress'd,
Impatient yet of perfect temperature,
Sleep dainty Love, while I sigh for thy sake,
So sleeps my Love, and yet my love doth wake.

1  Śpijcie, krnąbrne myśli, i dajcie odetchnąć mojej miłości:
Niech nie towarzyszy mej Ukochanej uczucie ułomne.
Nie tknijcie, pyszne dłonie, by nie poruszyć jej złości
Lecz tęsknijcie, niczym me tęskności płonne.
Bo gdy ona śpi, cierpię przez wzgląd na nią
I budzi się ma miłość, gdy śpi Miłość ma, jak Anioł.

2  Lecz, o furie gniewu mego, nieustające!
Skryta udręko mych cielesnych żądzy!
Piękności i cudowności, wciąż ukazujące
Się pośród płomieni Kupida ognisk gorących.
Bo gdy ona śpi, dotyk mój tęski za nią
I budzi się ma miłość, gdy śpi Miłość ma, jak Anioł.

3  Ma miłość szaleje, gdy Miłość ma śpi.
Ma miłość boi się, lecz Miłość jest bezpieczna.
Pokój mej Miłości, choć miłość w okowach drży.
Niecierpliwa, choć z natury swej stateczna.
Śpij kochana, gdym ku tobie zwrócony westchnień litanią
I budzi się ma miłość, gdy śpi Miłość ma, jak Anioł.
