Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes

Key: A

[A]Drink to me [Bm]only [C#m]with thine [D]eyes
And [A]I [D]will [E7]pledge with [A]mine.
[A]Or leave a [Bm]kiss with-[C#m]in [D]the cup
And [A]I'll [D]not [E7]ask for [A]wine.
The [A]thirst that [F#m]from the [C#m]soul doth rise
Doth [D]ask a [A]drink di-[B7 E]vine;
[A]But might I [Bm]of Jove's [C#m]nectar [D]sip,
I [A]would [D]not [E]change [E7]for [A]thine.

I sent thee late a rosy wreath,
Not so much hon'ring thee
As giving it a hope that there
It could not withered be;
But thou thereon did'st only breathe,
And sent'st it back to me,
Since when it grows and smells, I swear
Not of itself, but thee.
