Lyrics: Tobias Smollett

Adieu ye streams that smoothly flow,
Ye vernal airs that softly blow,
Ye plains by blooming spring arrayed,
Ye birds that warble through the shade.

Unhurt, from you my soul could fly,
Nor drop one tear nor heave one sigh;
But forced from Celia's charms to part
All joys desert my drooping heart.

O fairer than the rosy morn,
When flowers the dewy fields adorn,
Unsullied as the genial ray
That warms the balmy breeze of May.

Thy charms divinely bright appear,
And add new splendour to the year,
Improve the day with fresh delight,
And gild with joy the dreary night.
