Stevens was famous for his glees after Shakespeare.
Lyrics: William Shakespeare

Ye spotted snakes with double tongue,
Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen;
Newts and blindworms, do no wrong,
Come not near our fairy Queen.
Philomele, with melody,
Sing in your sweet lullaby;
Lulla, lulla, lullaby, lulla, lulla, lullaby:
Never harm nor spell nor charm,
Come our lovely lady nigh;
So, good night, with lullaby.

Weaving spiders,come not here;
Hence, you long-legged spinners, hence!
Beetles black, approach not near;
Worm nor snail, do no offence.
Philomele, with melody, &c.
