Passing By (Robert Herrick, 1592-1674; melody by Edward Purcell) There is a lady sweet and kind Was never face so pleased my mind, I did but see her passing by And yet I love her till I die! Her gestures, motions and her smile Her wit, her voice, my heart beguile; Beguile my heart, I know not why And yet I love her till I die! Cupid is winged, and doth range Her country; so my heart doth change. But change the earth, or change the sky Yet will I love her till I die! RG
