About the song
This is all 4 stanzas spliced together to make the complete song. Take 4 is the same but take 3 is the 3rd stanza and take 4 is a different vocal for the 4th stanza.

I started this with guitar on August 27, 2009 - the year before the 400 anniversary and I did 5 guitar takes and I also did 4 takes of "X. The Sea Hath Many Thousand Sands" on the same day. I did the keyboard melody for all the 1st 5 takes on April 13, 2010.
The picture on shows me on April 14, 2010 doing keyboard bass for take 1 (Take 1 & 5 are really bad).
I did the - keyboard for take 2 to 4 on August 20, 2010 so I did make it on the 400 anniversary of this ayre.

This is the 1st time this 400 year old song has been put out on MP3, CD, LP or 78 - I believe. Take 7 is really a remake recording where my friend
Mykola does all the keyboard parts and I just sing the 4th stanza on stereo tracks. - - This is very different from the take 4 version of this song.

The author of the lyric is anonymous but I like to think of this song as Robert Jones speaking to the patron of this book; Lady Mary (Sidney) Wroth since ten year before he had dedicated his first Booke to her father Sir Robert Sidney.

Take 7 was started on December 30, 2010 when Mykola did all the keyboard parts and so it was started on the 400th year anniversary of the song (Published in 1610).
I did my vocal a little bit late in May of 2011 for Take 7

Lyrics
VIII. How many new years have grow'n old

How many new yeares have grown old,
Since first your servant old was new,
How many long hours have I told,
Since first my love was vowed to you,
And yet alas, She doeth not know
Whether her servant. love or no.

How many walls as white as Snow,
And windowes cleaere as any glass,
Have I conjured to tell you so,
Which faithfully performed was,
And yet you'll swear you do not know,
Whether your servant love or no.

How often hath my pale lean face,
With true Characters of my love,
Petitioned to you for grace,
Whom neither sighs nor tears can move,
O cruell yet doe you not know,
Whether your servant love or no?

And wanting oft a better token,
I have been faine to send my heart,
Which now your cold disdaine hath broken,
Nor can you healt by any art,
O looke upon't and you shall know,
Whether your servant love or no.
