lyrics

[ROMEO to JULIET]
If I profane with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.

[JULIET to ROMEO]
Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much, which mannerly devotion shows in this;
For saints have hands that pilgrims’ hands do touch, And palm to palm is holy palmers‘ kiss.

[ROMEO to JULIET]
Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?

[JULIET to ROMEO]
Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in pray’r.

[ROMEO to JULIET]
O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do! They pray... (I.V.91-102)

What is her mother? Is she a Capulet? O dear account my life is my foe’s debt. (I.V.116)

[JULIET to ROMEO]
My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown and known too late! (I.V.137)
