Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Tell my Strephon that I die; let echoes to each other tell,
'Til the mournful accents fly to Strephon's ear, and all is well.
But gently breathe the fatal truth, and soften every harsher sound:
For Strephon's such a tender youth, the softest notes too deep will wound.
Now fountains, echoes, all be dumb; For should I cost my swain a tear,
I should repent it in my tomb, and grieve I bought my rest so dear.
