Callid, I still refuse to rise.
Now for good some token give; Give me now to feel my sin :
Give me bow my sin to leare; Bid me look on thee and mourn; Bid me to thy arms returo!

Melt me into gracious tears ;
Till thy lovely face appears :

And into nothing fall ; Content is thou exalted be,
And Christ be all in ail.
