Lyrics: Anon

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.
