Lyrics: Anon

Long live fair Oriana.
Hark, did you ever hear so sweet a singing?
They sing young love to waken;
The nymphs unto the woods their queen are bringing.
There was a note well taken.
O good, hark, how joyfully 'tis dittied;
A queen and song most excellently fitted.
I never heard a rarer, nor ever saw a fairer.
Then sing, ye shepherds and nymphs of Diana:
Long live fair Oriana.
