Webbe's harmonization of an anonymously written song.
Lyrics: Anon

One morning very early, one morning in the spring,
I heard a maid in Bedlam, who mournfully did sing;
Her chains she rattled on her hands,
While sweetly thus sang she:
I love my love because I know my love loves me.

Oh! Cruel were his parents, who sent my love to sea,
And cruel, cruel was the ship that bore my love away;
Yet I love his parents, since they're his,
Although they've ruined me: And
I love my love because I know my love loves me.

I'll make a strawy garland, I'll make it wondrous fine,
With roses, lilies, daisies, I'll mix sweet eglantine;
And I'll present it to my love
When he returns from sea: For
I love my love because I know my love loves me.
