RECITATIVE 10

ODE TO MY WIFE

To thee my wife, my love, my life

I own all pleasure I have known

My guardian through all harm and strife

Whose heart beats always with my own.

I offer thee everything that is mine

And pray each day in gratitude

To God who made thee so divine

Adopting no hypocritical attitude

When praising thine eyes, thy hair, thy face

Without which I’ll die each morn and nght

When thou art taken to a higher place

To dwell forever in God’s loving sight.

 

But, my darling, I well can see

T’is better mourning fall to me

Than thou be left, thy tears to shed

Without me beside thee in thy bed.

AWE
