A song from Arne's opera Cymon, recast as a glee.
Lyrics: David Garrick

This cold, flinty heart
It is you who have warmed;
You wakened my passions,
My senses have charmed.
In vain, against merit
And Cymon I strove:
What's life without passion,
Sweet passion of love?


The spring should be warm,
The young season be gay;
Her birds and her flow'rets
Make blithesome sweet may.
Love blesses the cottage
And sings through the grove:
What's life without passion,
Sweet passion of love?
