|Contents:||O god, give ear --
Mine eyes with fervency --
My soul oppressed with care --
How shall a young man? --
O Lord, how long wilt thou forget --
Help Lord, for wasted are those men --
Blessed is he that fears the Lord --
Lord, in thy wrath --
Even from the depth --
I joy not in no earthly bliss --Though Amaryllis dance in green --
Who likes to love --
My mind to me a kingdom is --
Where fancy fond --
O you that hear this voice --
If women could be fair --
Ambitious love --
What pleasure have great princes --
As I beheld I saw a herdman --
Although the heathen poets --
In fields abroad --
Constant Penelope --
La virginella --
Farewell, false love --
The match that's made --
Prostrate, O Lord, I lie --
All as a sea --
Susanna fair --
If that a sinner's sighs --
Care for thy soul --
Lullaby, my sweet little baby --
Why do I use my paper, ink and pen? --
Come to me, grief, for ever --
O that most rare breast.
