Title: Sometime my hope
Composer: Alfonso Ferrabosco I
Original text and translations
Sometime my hope full weakly went on by line and leisure,
but now it grows to do my heart some pleasure.
Yet that my hope decay not by overmuch contenting,
Love will not give my joys their full augmenting,
but still with some disaster,
allays my bliss that hope may be the faster.
