This glee gained a Catch Club prize medal in 1773. Hutcheson, son of the Scottish philosopher of the same name, was an amateur composer who published this and other works under the pseudonym of Francis Ireland.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Where weeping yews and nodding cypress wave
In awful gloom around thy mossy grave,
Let nymphs and shepherds yearly tribute bring
And strew the earliest vi'lets of the spring;
Let fairy footsteps trace the midnight round
And guard from ev'ry ill the hallow'd ground.
There drooping love and friendship oft appear;
And virtue greets thine ashes with a tear.
