Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Sweet doth blush the rosy morning,
Sweet doth beam the glist'ning dew,
Sweeter still, the day adorning,
Thy dear smiles transport my view.
'Midst the blossoms' fragrance flowing,
Why delights the honied bee?
Sweeter breaths thyself bestowing
One kind kiss on me.
