From Corfe's third set of glees. The model on which this arrangement is based remains unidentified.
Lyrics: Anon

Hope, thou source of ev'ry blessing,
Parent of each joy divine,
Ev'ry balmy sweet possessing,
Ev'ry promised bliss be thine.
Softest friend, to heart-felt anguish
Lend, O lend, thy pow'rful aid;
Bid the lover cease to languish,
Cheer the fond despairing maid.

Soothe, sweet hope, the maiden's sighing,
For with love the heart's oppressed;
Ever to her sorrows flying,
Thou canst give her joy and rest.
Softest friend, to heart-felt anguish
Lend, O lend, thy pow'rful aid;
Bid the lover cease to languish,
Cheer the fond despairing maid.
