From Danby's first book of catches, etc., 1785.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Music has power to melt the soul, by beauty Nature's swayed;
Each can the universe control, without the other's aid.
But here together each appear and force united try;
Music enchants the listening ear, and beauty charms the eye.
What cruelty, these powers to join; Such transports who can bear?
Oh! Let the sound be less divine, or look the nymph less fair.
