From Paxton's "Selection of two songs, six glees and two catches", published posthumously as his Op. 7.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Majestic lo, yon setting sun
In beauteous pomp declines;
See how the west with crimson glows,
Streaked with refulgent lines.
Behold, how Nature to its rest
Each being seems t'invite;
The nightingale's melodious song,
Sweet song, proclaims the night.
