Lyrics: Thomas Gray

On a rock, whose haughty brow
Frowns o'er old Conway's foaming flood,
Robed in the sable garb of woe,
With haggard eyes the poet stood;
Loose his beard and hoary hair
Streamed like a meteor to the troubled air;
And with a master's hand and prophet's fire
Struck the deep sorrows of his lyre.
