Lyrics: Anon

Beneath this stone, entombed with martial fame,
Lies Wolfe the brave, of ever-glorious name.
O passenger, with awe approach this bust,
Enriched and hallowed by your hero's dust.
Recount his deeds and pay the friendly tear,
To virtue, truth and honour rested here:
Yea let your generous bosom melt with grief,
To pay the last sad tribute to your chief.
Nor let a Briton pass the hallowed pile,
But stop and weep the glory of his isle,
In triumph slain. O youth as good as brave,
Torn from thy conquest to the humble grave,
Farewell! Be blessed and angels speed thy flight
To the bright regions of eternal light.
