       ,         ,      ,        ,         ,
      As a | decrep|it fa|ther takes | delight
          ,         ,        ,      T   T    .   T
      To see | his ac|tive child | do deeds of youth,
         ,          ,        ,           ,        ,
      So I,| made^lame | by For|tune's dear|est spite
            ,        ,             ,    ,           ,
      Take^all | my com|fort of / thy worth | and truth.
           ,         ,        ,           ,         ,
      For whe|ther beau|ty, birth,| or wealth,| or wit,
         ,     ,          ,        ,         ,
      Or a|ny of | these^all,| or all,| or more,
         ,       ,         ,          ,       ,
      Entit|led in | thy parts,| do crow|ned sit,
          ,         ,        ,       ,          ,
      I make | my love | engraf|ted to | this store:
           ,     2    ,      T     T    T         ,
      So then | I am not | lame, poor, nor | despised,
               ,          ,        ,          ,           ,
      Whilst^that | this sha|dow doth | such^sub|stance^give,
           ,       ,      ,         ,        ,
      That I | in thy | abun|dance am | sufficed,
           ,       ,        ,         ,       ,
      And by | a part | of all | thy glo|ry live:
        T    T   .   T           ,        ,         ,
      Look what is best,| that best | I wish | in thee:
             ,        ,          ,      T     Tx   T
