It's "Now thanked bee the great God Pan" from Ravenscroft's Pammelia (1609). Scroll down to no. 95 (p. 49). Ravenscroft's Melismata (1611) and Deuteromelia (1609) are also at the same site. To search for this one, the year 1609 was a hint for me.

can anyone e-mail me the gif? "They" in their infinite wisdom have once again blocked Greg Lindah's site. To much danger of education occuring if the kiddies visit it I guess.

Now thank-ed be the great God Pan,
Which thus preserves my lov-ed life
And thank-ed be I that keep a man
Who end-ed hath this bloody strife
For if my man must praises have
What then must I that keep the knave

From Selected Prose and Poetry by Sir Philip Sidney, edited by Robert Kimbrough (Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin Press, 1983), page 62:

Now thanked be the great god Pan,
That thus preserves my loved life;
Thanked be I that keep a man,
Who ended hath this fearful strife.

So, if my man must praises have,
What then must I that keep the knave?

For as the moon the eye doth please,
With gently beams not hurting sight,
Yet hath Sir Sun the greatest praise,
Because from him doth come her light.

So, if my man must praises have;
When then must I that keep the knave?
