Stevens was famous for his glees after Shakespeare.
Lyrics: William Shakespeare

O mistress mine, where are you roaming?
O stay and hear your true love's coming,
That can sing both high and low.
Trip no further, pretty sweeting,
Journeys end in lovers' meeting
Every wise man's son doth know.

What is love? 'Tis not hereafter;
Present mirth has present laughter,
What's to come is still unsure.
In delay there lies no plenty,
Then don't leave me, sweet and twenty;
Youth's a season won't endure.
