This glee gained a Catch Club prize medal in 1788.
Lyrics: John Cunningham

Swiftly from the mountain's brow,
Shadows, nursed by night, retire;
And the peeping sunbeams now
Paint with gold the village spire.

Sweet, O sweet, the warbling throng
On the white emblossomed spray;
Nature's universal song
Echoes to the rising day.
