Lyrics: Anon

Goddess of the tuneful lyre,
Who kindlest mortal breasts with heav'nly fire,
On thy vot'ries deign to smile,
And sublunary griefs and cares beguile.

She hears celestial airs resound
And fill with melody the skies around.
My soul transported soars above,
Till lost in strains ecstatic of unbounded love.
