Title: Who loves a life
Composer: John Mundy
Original text and translations
Who loves a life devoid of quiet rest,
And seeks content in dens of cruel care;
Who most triumphs, when most he is opprest,
And weens him free, when fast he is in snare;
Who in the sweet doth find the sourest tast,
His life is love, his food is vain repast.
