Lyrics: John Wilkes

Thy altar, gen'rous god of wine,
A votary leaves for Sylvia's shrine.
But should my Sylvia faithless prove,
For thee I'll quit the god of love.
Thy nectar shall my cares dispel,
Thy wit on all her faults shall dwell.
Love's myrtle torn, fresh ivy wreaths I'll twine
Around my brows, O Bacchus, god of wine.
