Transcription

Squire. Listen, though I do not fear you,

Listen to me, ere we part.


Edmunds. List to you! Yes, I will hear you.


Squire. Yours alone is Lucy’s heart,

I swear it, by that heav’n above me.


Edmunds. What! can I believe my ears! 

Could I hope that she still loves me.


Squire. Banish all these doubts and fears,

If a love were e’er worth gaining,

If love were ever fond and true,

No disguise or passion feigning,

Such is her young love for you.


Squire. Listen, though I do not fear you,

Listen to me, ere we part.

Edmunds. List to you! yes, I will hear you.

Mine alone is her young heart.
