Lyrics: Marmaduke John Daintrey

Music the soul with melody inspires,
The heart of man with true ambition fires;
When the soft strains with pleasing concord flow,
The lover's tender passions softer grow:
Music charms grief, Fate's rigid pow'r defies,
Sorrow throws off, and dries the weeping eyes:
Ev'n savages soft music's sounds adore,
And seem to lose their nature by its gentle pow'r.
