From Holder's somewhat grandiloquently titled Op. 14.
Lyrics: William Shenstone

Beneath a churchyard yew,
Decayed and worn with age,
At dusk of eve methought I spied
Poor Slender's ghost, that whimp'ring cried:
"O sweet, O sweet Ann Page."

Ye gentle bards, give ear,
Who talk of am'rous rage;
Who spoil the lily, rob the rose,
Come learn of me to weep your woes:
"O sweet, O sweet Ann Page."
