Lyrics: Anacreon (trans. Francis Fawkes)

For Agathon, in fighting fields renown'd,
Abdera mourns his fun'ral pyre around.
For him she mingles tears with bright applause,
Who nobly suffer'd in his country's cause.
So youth so brave, unknowing how to yield,
E'er perish'd in the thunder of the field.
