WHenever, Chloe, I begin

,

Your heart like mine to move, You tell me of the crying sin

Of unchafte lawless love.

How can that passion be a sin,

Which gave to Chloe birth? How can those joys but be divine,

Which make a heaven on earth?

To wed, mankind the priest trepann'd,

By some fly fallacy,
And disobey'd God's great command,

Increase and multiply.

You say that love's a crime; content:

Yet this allow you must,
More joy's in heav'n if one repent,

Than over ninety just.

Sin then, dear girl, for heaven's fake,

Repent and be forgiven;
Bless me, and by repentance make

A holy day in heaven.
