While I listen to thy voice, Chloris, I feel my life decay; That powerful noise Calls my flitting soul away. Oh! suppress that magic sound, Which destroys without a wound. Peace, Chloris, peace! or singing die, That together you and I To heaven may go; For all we know Of what the blessed do above Is, that they sing and that they love.
