Until the Break of Day
Words by William Shakespeare/John Allee
Music by John Allee


Now until the break of day

Through this house each fairy stray

To the best bride bed will we

Which by us shall blessèd be

And the issue there create

Ever shall be fortunate

So shall all their family

Ever true in loving be


With this field dew consecrate

Every fairy take his gait

And each several chamber bless

Through this palace with sweet peace

And the owner of it blessed

Ever shall in safety rest

And the blots of Nature’s hand

Shall not in their issue stand


Trip away

Make no stay

Meet me all by break of day
