From Holder's somewhat grandiloquently titled Op. 14.
Lyrics: Thomas Bancroft

Gentle friends, with tears forbear
To drown a withered flow'ret here;
That, in the spring of Nature's pride,
Drank the morning dew and died.
Death may teach you how to live,
And a friendly call doth give
To this humble house of mine:
Here's his inn and here's the sign.
