rolig commented on the word lyfull
I expect that "lyfull" (lyf "life + full) meant "full of life (i.e. the life force)", and therefore "life-giving" ("quickening"), and not "lively", at least not in our modern sense of the word ("vivacious, energetic, spirited").

"Began some smacke of comfort new to tast,
Like lyfull heat to nummed senses brought,"
Could this mean "lively"?
