Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Blest pow'r, here see thy vot'ry bend,
Despondent at thy shrine;
Oh, may my Celia's breast ne'er feel
The pain that tortures mine.

Tell her the flame, that artless burns
All pure within my breast,
On her relies; each hope and fear,
Which she alone can rest.

O, bid her own why thus her heart
Relentless hears my pain,
And kindly wing thy golden dart
To make her love again.
