1 Arise my dear love, my undefil'd dove,
I hear my dear Jesus to say,
The winter is past, the spring's come at last,
My love, my dove come away.

2 The earth that is green is fair to be seen,
The little birds chirping do say,
That they do rejoice in each other's voice,
My love, my dove come away.

3 All smiling in love the young turtle dove
The flower appearing in May,
All speak forth the praise of th' ancient of days,
Ny love my dove come away.

4 come away from th' world's cares, those troublesome snares
That follow by night and by day--
That you may be free from the troubles, that be,
My love, my dove, come away.

5 Come away from all fear that troubles you here,
Come into my arms he doth say,
That you may be clear from the troubles you fear--
My love my dove come away.

6 Come away from all pride, from that raging tide,
That makes you fall out by the way--
Come learn to be meek and your Jesus to seek,
My love, my dove come away.

7 As t' you that are old, and whose hearts are grown cold,
Your Jesus inviting doth say--
That he's heard your cries in the north countries,
My love, my dove come away.

8 As t' you that are young, your hearts they are strong,
Your Jesus invites you away;
From antichrist's charms to your Jesus' kind arms,
My love, my dove come away.

9 And as to the youth that have known the truth,
Whose hearts they have led you astray,
Come hear to his voice and your hearts shall rejoice,
My love, my dove come away.

10 My dear children all come hear to my call,
While I stand knocking and say--
My head's wet with dew my children for you,
My love, my dove come away.

11 My fatlings are kill'd, my table is fill'd,
My maidens attending do say--
There's wine on the lees as much as you please,
My love, my dove come away.

12 Come travel the road that leads you to God,
For it is a bright shining way;
Come run up and down my errands upon,
My love my dove come away.
