Lyrics: William Shakespeare

Fear no more the heat of the sun,
Nor the furious winter's rages;
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone to take thy wages;
Golden lads and lasses must
All follow thee and turn to dust.
No exorciser harm thee,
Nor no witchcraft charm thee,
Ghost unlaid forbear thee,
Nothing ill come near thee.
Quiet consummation have,
Unremoved be thy grave.
