Owain Phyfe - Now, O, Now, I Needs Must Part lyrics

Now, o now I needs must part,
Parting though I absent mourn.
Absence can no joy impart;
Joy once fled cannot return.

While I live I needs must love,
Love lives not when hope is gone.
Now at last despair doth prove
Love divided loveth none.

Sad despair doth drive me hence;
This despair unkindness sends.
If that parting be offence,
It is she which then offends.

Dear, when I from thee am gone,
Gone are all my joys at once.
I lov'd thee and thee alone,
In whole love I joyed once.
