Composer: Matthew Locke
First published: 1667
Original text and translations
Ne’er trouble thyself about times or their turnings,
Afflictions run circular, and wheel about:
Away with thy murmuring, and thy heart-burning,
With the juice of the grape, we will quench the fire out.
Ne'er chain, nor imprison thy soul up in sorrow,
What fails us today, may befriend us tomorrow.
