The Heart and Service

 The heart and service to you proffer'd
With right good will full honestly,
Refuse it not, since it is offer'd,
But take it to you gentlely.
And though it be a small present, Yet good, consider graciously The thought, the mind, and the intent Of him that loves you faithfully.
It were a thing of small effect To work my woe thus cruelly, For my good will to be abject: Therefore accept it lovingly.
Pain or travel, to run or ride, I undertake it pleasantly; Bid ye me go, and straight I glide At your commandement humbly.
Pain or pleasure, now may you plant Even which it please you steadfastly; Do which you list, I shall not want To be your servant secretly.
And since so much I do desire To be your own assuredly, For all my service and my hire Reward your servant liberally.
